Phoned in threat clears Oak Harbor Walmart
The Walmart store in Oak Harbor was evacuated for about an hour Saturday after an unknown person made a bomb threat.
Nothing suspicious was found inside the store, according to Oak Harbor Police Chief Ed Green.
A Walmart employee reported the bomb threat just before 5 p.m.
The employee said a man had just called in the threat to the store.
“Male subject started conversation by mumbling — then clearly states there was a bomb in the store — then began mumbling again when he was asked to repeat himself,” according to the 9-1-1 log.
Customers were allowed back into the store after police investigated.
Green said store employees and responding police responded exactly as they should have.
A detective is investigating the case.
No suspect has been identified, according to police.
