A bomb threat was called into Carrabba’s restaurant on Cypress Edge in Palm Coast late this afternoon. By 5:45 p.m., the scene was declared secure and cleared.

“Subject called in and said basically, ‘I’m going to blow up your building,” a sheriff’s spokesman said just after 5 p.m. 

Flagler County Sheriff’s units have converged to the scene, staging at the Walmart parking lot, closing Cypress Edge but only in front of the restaurant, and preparing to examine the scene with a bomb-sniffing dog.  The Palm Coast Fire Department is there, as is one rescue by the county’s fire department.

Carrabba’s is at 160 Cypress Edge Drive. Neighboring businesses, which include Florida Hospital Flagler’s annex, have been notified of the emergency, but there are no evacuation orders.

Asked whether any people were left in the restaurant, the spokesman, who was operating on limited information at that point, said: “I can’t say with any certainty whether there is or there is not.”  Shortly afterward, the spokesman said the restaurant had been evacuated, and that a bomb-sniffing dog had completed one walk-through of the business, finding “nothing suspicious so far.” Another walk-through was to take place.

It’s not clear from where the call was placed, only that the caller was “pretty straight-forward,” the sheriff’s spokesman said.

The spokesman expected the issue to be resolved “very soon,” with no plans to call in the St. Johns County Sheriff’s bomb squad. That squad is usually called in when a device feared to be a bomb is actually found.

No bomb was found and the all-clear was signaled at 5:45 p.m.

    Review the HR files for recently reprimanded or fired employees. Or maybe an employee’s jilted lover.

    PALM COAST…Old people with money & YOUNG people with low paying jobs & no hope. NOT a good combination.

    Trace the call that they received!! If was made from a mobil phone will be easier to trace. I like Carrabas and
    and is very undermining to any business these anonymous terror threats. Serious issue to be resolved by law enforcement.

  11. South Florida says:

    This place has changed and it’s a damn Shane. It used to be practically crime Free. We had a nice peaceful City. It’s been taken over by a lot of riff raff.
    I was going to stay hoping it would get better. Now, I’m considering other options.
    I would prefer to be around a better group or combination of people. Just not the trouble makers.

    I have been coming here for 15 years Just made it my permanent home. Probably mischievous kids with nothing to do Not realizing the severity. Something like this could ruin a business. I think that we need more for pre-teens/teens to do. Keep them occupied. My dad always said the idle mind is the devils workshop.

    I say BS to all of it!

    The food is not good, but not all that bad!

  15. Realist says:

    Have beern in this city for about 25 years. Used to work for ITT. It has changed. Along with the increase in population, has been lots of undesirables. All they want is affordable housing AKA low income. No jobs except servers and this place is rapidly deteriorating. A useless city counsel and an even more useless city manager. Not sure this place can be saved.

  16. Born and Raised Here says:

    Palm Coast is a hospitality service town that depends on those people who do not have suitable education or job scales who chose to work in a dead end job where the wages and job skills are perhaps the lowest in the industry and work force. Until the city does not take the required action to improve our work force and attract a more suitable professional work force, unfortunately things like this are a factor in our town.

  17. Lazaruis says:

    I agree with Realist and Bob .

  18. PC Outlaw says:

    But now we have flowers in the middle of PC Parkway…… This place can’t be all bad.
