Plainfield Shopping Mall Evacuated Overnight

Plainfield Police evacuated The Shops at Perry Crossing around 1am Saturday morning. The same suspect that is behind the threats made to Plainfield High School is believed to be behind the social media threat to the mall. The threat was posted to the mall’s Facebook page, and staff at the mall contacted police who then made the decision to evacuate. The investigation is still underway, and the Plainfield Police Department is “taking every step possible to keep the citizens safe while maintaining normal patrol operations in Plainfield”. The Shops at Perry Crossing will open Saturday morning for normal business hours.
