(KSL News) Some Salt Lake residents tipped off police to a suspicious car last night.

Lt. Craig Gleason of the Salt Lake City Police Department said, "Some people said, ‘Hey, we think there's a bomb in a car.'"

Just before midnight, they called police after a group of men jumped out of a car, claiming to have a bomb inside.

Witnesses described the car as a gold Lincoln Town Car. When officers arrived, they found a car with a similar description abandoned, with the door open. K-9 units were called out, and police determined no explosives were inside.

"You're never too safe with explosives," Gleason said. "I don't think they were real, but we have to be safe."
