ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — A bomb threat called into the Rowan County fulfillment facility of Chewy, a popular online pet supply retailer, turned out to be a false alarm, according to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators sent K-9 teams into the building but did not find anything suspicious. At 6:30 p.m., investigators said the facility was clear.
Rowan County detectives continue to investigate.
“We would like to thank all the agencies who assisted in this incident today and ask anyone with information to contact the Sheriff’s Office,” said Rowan County Chief Deputy Jason Owens.
