"If you received a call like this, it is not the police," said IMPD Sgt. Catherine Cummings. "We're not going to call you. We're not going to tell you to rip items out of your business. We're not going to tell you to break windows."
Police and fire officials say any inspection would involve a public safety official being there in person.
If you do get a call like this, police say you should use your best judgment about whether to leave the store, and call 911 as soon as you can.
