Bomb threat closes Toccoa Walmart
By Martin Dotson Staff
A north Georgia Walmart had to be evacuated Sunday morning, due to a bomb scare.
According to Toccoa Police Lt. John Addis, the bomb threat was phoned in to a Walmart employee around 11:06 a.m. Employees evacuated the store while police and fire units were being dispatched.
Addis says a time limit was stated in the bomb threat. That time came and passed without incident. Afterward, a bomb-sniffing dog was run through the building; nothing was found.
Toccoa Police, along with the Stephens County Sheriff's Office, still are investigating. The Walmart was cleared to be re-opened shortly after 1:00 p.m.
