Nothing found after bomb threat at Comerica

DETROIT -- A rash of recent bomb threats around Detroit landmarks added Comerica Park to its list on Tuesday, prompting a Detroit police and Tigers security search around the stadium, which revealed no explosive device.

"The situation was handled by the DPD and local authorities," said Tigers vice president of communications Ron Colangelo, who referred further questions to the Detroit Police Department.

A police spokeswoman told the Detroit News and Free Press an anonymous threat came in to 911 operators around 8 p.m. ET, prompting the search. No device was found, and no evacuation was ordered while the game continued.

The threat came a day after a similar 911 call led to the shutdown of the nearby Ambassador Bridge over the Detroit River into Windsor, Ontario. Another threat at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel downtown last Thursday closed that border crossing temporarily. Neither of those searches found explosive devices, either.
