LOGAN — After multiple bomb threats on Sunday multiple additional threats were reported in Utah on Monday. First, at the St. George airport and then at Cache Valley Mall in Logan. Explosives were not found at either location.

Airport director, Rich Steahmeier, told KSL TV that only one terminal was evacuated at St. George Airport around 8 a.m. It only had one passenger inside, because all other flights had taken off. The airport moved TSA and Skywest to another terminal during the investigation.

Steahmeier said it took about an hour for police to determine that there was no threat. The airport opened back up and the person who was evacuated made his or her flight.

Later on Monday at about 1:30 p.m., the Logan City Police Department use a Utah State University bomb dog to clear Cache Valley Mall after everyone was evacuated. Police are asking people to stay away from the area until their search is done, in which case they may reopen the mall later.

Authorities said the email was not specific to Cache Valley or any mall; it just stated there was a bomb in the mall and bombs throughout Utah. It was likely related to other bomb threats made, including several Jewish synagogues in Utah and a St. George mall the day prior.

Captain Shand Nazer with LCPD confirmed they are still investigating the origin of the threats.


This story was updated to include the St. George Airport bomb threat, but was not originally published with those details.
