A bomb scare at noon Friday called into Tropicana Perfume Shoppe on Main Street caused them to close the doors, according to an employee who did not wish to be identified.
According to an employee of Little Switzerland, located in the A.H. Riise building, that store was ordered to close its doors by police, but "just for a short time," the employee said. She added that Main Street was also closed to traffic during that time.
A spate of bomb scares has plagued the territory this year, starting with two at Cyril E. King Airport, then one in which the entire Crown Bay area was evacuated.
Efforts to contact police as of press time were not successful.
