Mount Pleasant — The all-clear has been given after officials say threatening calls prompted the evacuation of about 2,500 people from Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort.

Erik Rodriguez, interim public relations director for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, tells that the Mount Pleasant casino and hotel on Thursday night received two bomb threats about 15 minutes apart that concerned officials.

Rodriguez says guests and employees of the casino and hotel were evacuated as a precaution.

The Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant reports police and sheriff’s officials searched the facilities. No one was injured and the search turned up nothing suspicious.

Rodriguez says the all-clear was given Friday morning and the public was expected to be allowed back inside the facilities.
