ELMONT - Officials have stepped up security at Home Depot stores across Long Island.

The move comes after another bomb scare at a Home Depot in Elmont yesterday.

The bomb squad was called to the store on Hempstead Turnpike yesterday after the report of a suspicious package. The store was evacuated and no explosive materials were found.

Officials say a crude pipe bomb was found at the Home Depot in Huntington Station earlier this week.

According to police, the pipe bomb found at the store on Monday was accompanied by a note threatening more attacks.

So far no arrests have been made.
