BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — The Lee County Sheriff's Office is investigating a pair of bomb threats made against two Bonita Springs Publix stores.

According to a Tweet from the office, the stores at 12900 Trade Way Four and 3304 Bonita Beach Rd. received telephone threats Wednesday afternoon.

Both stores were evacuated and screened by deputies. No devices were found, and both stores were allowed to reopen.

The Bonita Beach Rd. store is the same location that was evacuated Feb. 21 for a similar bomb threat, which was deemed to not be credible.
