Bomb scare at FCIB

The normal Friday hustle and bustle at the First Caribbean International Bank (FCIB) was rudely interrupted after word got around that someone had called to say there was a bomb planted in the building.

Persons were seen hustling from the bank fearing for their lives.{{more}}

Police quickly arrived at the scene, helped secured the building and scurried customers and bystanders away to safety.

Police told SEARCHLIGHT that a telephone call was made to one of the tellers at about 12.30 p.m. stating a bomb was in the building.

Some persons took the event to be a spectator sport as they stuck around to see what was going to occur instead of fleeing to safety.

Investigations are still being carried out into the matter.
