HIGHLAND — The town's Target store was evacuated Saturday because of a bomb threat, police said.
Highland police received the call about 8:27 p.m. and began the evacuation at 8:33 p.m., Cmdr. John Banasiak said.
The store was checked, and no bomb was found, he said. The store reopened about 9:20 p.m.
Target stores in Highland, Munster and throughout the Chicago area received the bomb threat, which apparently was computer-generated, Banasiak said.
A recording of a person's voice was sent to multiple locations, Banasiak said.
