Multiple bomb threats called into area Dollar General Stores

Three stores in the area have all received bomb threats Friday night.

Stillwater Police and other emergency agencies investigated a bomb threat at a Dollar General store.

In a Facebook post, the Stillwater Police department advised residents to stay away from the Price Chopper Plaza in Mechanicville, until the area was cleared by police.

That area has since been cleared in a follow up post.

Earlier Friday evening, a similar threat was made to a Dollar General store in Schenectady.  That store has since been cleared by State Police with a K-9 unit.

A manager of the Scotia Dollar General also confirmed with CBS6 that a bomb threat was also called into the store at around 7:00 p.m., however police cleared that store as well.

There is no word on if the three cases are related.
