A bomb scare in the Loop didn’t last long on Tuesday night, but Jersey Boys had to take a time-out from their show.
Two suspicious boxes were removed and disposed of by police from behind the Bank of America Theatre, 18 W. Monroe St.
“It’s not funny, it’s not a joke. It put public safety at risk, it cost the city an extraordinary sum of money,” said Roy.
The Tony-award winning musical "Jersey Boys" was interrupted in order to get people to evacuate.
Police received a call about the boxes around 9 p.m. on Tuesday. The boxes had two notes attached to them.
“This is not a bomb,” and “This is not going to end good” were the messages written on the notes.
Whether it was a joke or not, the ones responsible for the bomb-scare will be prosecuted… and will have to pay the city the cost for all this hoopla.
