MERIDIAN, Miss.–It was one year ago today that bombs went off at the Boston Marathon and tributes and memorials were planned in that city. In Mississippi, on the eve of that anniversary, a bomb threat was called in to the McDonald’s in Meridian.
Police got the call just after 9 Monday night and went to the McDonald’s on Hwy. 19 south.
Business stopped, everyone was evacuated and cops swept the building for any signs of a bomb. Nothing was found and employees opened the place back up.
