Miami Beach Police shut down the 900 block of Ocean Drive for two hour Wednesday night due to threats of a possible explosive before giving the all clear at midnight.

Just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, the department got four calls on the non-emergency line from a man making threats.

“He stated that there were explosives along Ocean Drive between Ninth Street and 10th Street,” said police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez.

Around 10 p.m. Wednesday, officers and police dogs were on the scene in South Beach sweeping the area.

After following protocol and investigating, police said there were no credible threats and cleared the scene around midnight.
