CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) — Carlsbad Police officers were called to a resort on Monday over a reported bomb threat following a "suspicious phone call."

Officers responded to the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa at 2100 Costa Del Mar Rd. just before 4 p.m. Monday. According to a CPD spokesperson, the department was "using an abundance of caution" and investigating a bomb threat "based on a suspicious phone call to the property."

Carlsbad Police said officers were being assisted by several agencies in their investigation, including Oceanside CHP, Carlsbad Firefighters, San Diego County Sheriff's, and U.S. Marine Corps personnel, "due to the size of the resort."

The department said the all-clear had been given before 8 p.m. "All is clear at the resort. The threat was found to be false."
