A Socastee-area McDonald’s was evacuated by Horry County police early Tuesday morning after an unknown caller said there was a bomb in an outside trash can.
Police responded to the restaurant at 4500 U.S. 17 about 2:15 a.m., set up a perimeter, and called in a bomb squad, according to a police report.
Bomb squad agents didn’t find anything and cleared the scene, authorities said. Horry County police spokeswoman Krystal Dotson said no one was injured during the incident.
