Two fast food restaurants in Tamarac have been evacuated while a bomb squad investigate a suspicious suitcase left outside a McDonald's restaurant.
The incident began around 8:15 p.m. when a man walked into the McDonald's at 7600 N.W. 57th St. and told employees he had a bomb in the small suitcase he was carrying, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
The suitcase appears to have wires coming out of it that are attached to the cell phone. It was left in front of a side door.
The McDonald's and a nearby Taco Bell have been evacuated while BSO's bomb squad determines what the suitcase contains. Traffic around the intersection of Commercial Boulevard and University Drive is being rerouted and motorists are being advised to avoid the area.
The man has been taken into custody and is being questioned.
