SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah authorities say bomb threats were made that caused evacuations at several stores in Utah.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( ) that bomb threats were made at two pharmacies in Provo and Wal-Marts in Logan and Ogden on Wednesday. No explosives were found at either location.

Logan police Chief Gary Jensen says the threats at the Wal-Mart there were made by somebody who sounded like a man demanding money be put on gift cards. The Logan Wal-Mart was evacuated for about two hours.

Jensen tells the Tribune that he’s believes it was scam and not a real threat. He says similar threats have been made nationwide.

Provo police Lt. Mathew Siufanua says bomb threats were made at a Walgreens and Rite Aid in Provo. Both were evacuated for a short time.
