Police responding to bomb threat at Carmike Cinemas around country

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Carmike Cinemas across the country appear to be the subject of multi-state/multi-location bomb threats. 

Lufkin is among the locations. According to police spokesman JB Smith, a call was made to the corporate office that bombs had been placed at some Carmike locations.

As a precaution, police dispatched two officers to the Lufkin location, at Lufkin Mall, around 10:30 a.m. The officers swept the theater to make sure there were no bombs.

Officers were responding to Carmike theaters around the country following the threat. Smith said it appears Carmike notified police in cities which had that theater as a precaution.
