A 17-year-old Calhoun youth reportedly called-in a bomb threat to a Parkersburg McDonald's yesterday, according to the Parkersburg Police Department.

A McDonalds on Ohio Avenue was evacuated after the youth called in a bomb threat because he was angry with his girlfriend. She works at the eatery.

Fire department officials said the call was made at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

McDonalds was evacuated and the area was blocked off by police and fire personnel.

The fire department deployed a bomb-sniffing dog to search the building, after which nothing was found.

Officials told media they believe the youth who made the call was in Calhoun County.

The investigation is continuing this morning.
