Another false bomb threat called in at Hotel Pere Marquette

Police are investigating another false bomb threat at a downtown Peoria hotel.

This comes just a little over the week after the last one at that location.

Peoria police say the threat was called in just after 1:30 a.m. Saturday. The building was evacuated.

Guests were moved back into the building as sections were cleared by a K-9. No bomb was found.

An earlier bomb threat at the hotel on Jan. 19 was deemed false.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call police.
