Cops Evacuate Fla. Movie Theater Over Reports Of Shotgun Being Smuggled In — Turns Out to Be a Sub Sandwich

The Epic movie theater multiplex in St. Augustine, FL was evacuated Thursday after two people called police and reported a man “stuffing something suspicious down the back of his pants” and that he could have a shotgun.

Approximately a dozen police cars responded to the scene. The theaters were emptied, the suspect located, but no gun (or any weapon) was found. Instead, the alleged smuggler admitted to sneaking a large sub sandwich into the theater.

Shortly after the incident, St. Augustine’s local TV channel, First Coast News was on the scene and filed this report.
