Delaware State Police say they are investigating a weekend bomb threat phoned into a pharmacy on the Coastal Highway in Rehoboth.

Authorities say a man called the Rite Aid store in the 4000 block of Coastal Highway on Saturday afternoon and asked to speak to the pharmacist on duty. According to police, the man told the pharmacist that if he didn't receive certain drugs he had requested, he would blow up the store with a bomb he had placed inside.

Authorities say the pharmacist called police while he kept the person on the line, but got disconnected from the man in the meantime. Authorities say the man called back to the store and it was evacuated while police conducted a search.

Police say they did not find any explosives.
