CLINTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Police confirm Clinton Crossing Premium Outlet will not be open this weekend after looting threats made on social media.

Police said they were alerted about numerous social media postings published this week, advocating the looting of the Outlet.

The decision to close the Outlet was in the interest of safety for all, police said.

Police are now working with Simon, the mall’s owner, and other law enforcement sources including the FBI’s Cyber-Intelligence unit.

News 8 crews drove by Friday night and saw Jersey barriers in place at exits and entrances as well as police officers patrolling. We’re told store windows are boarded up.

News 8 reached out to Simon Properties for a comment but has yet to hear back.
