A brief bomb scare caused a quick evacuation for two Lexington stores Monday afternoon, police officials said.

The call came into the Men’s Warehouse store in the 3800 block of Nicholasville Road around 12:25 p.m., Lexington Police Lt. Mark Brand said. The manager quickly called 911, sending multiple Lexington Police and Fire crews to the scene.

Officials quickly evacuated the Men’s Warehouse store and the Sprint store next door out of precaution, police said.

Police called a bomb-sniffing K-9 unit to search the building. Police officials also said they searched the outside of the store and checked cars in the parking lot for anything suspicious.

Police officials said they didn’t find anything suspicious and the store was turned back over to the employees after about 45 minutes.

Detectives are investigating.
