Bomb threat clears Wasilla Wal-Mart

Posted: Thursday, July 20, 2000

WASILLA (AP) -- The Wasilla Wal-Mart store was evacuated early Wednesday morning after someone called in a bomb threat there, Wasilla police said.

Police told KMBQ radio that officers cleared the store around 1 a.m. to search for a bomb. When nothing was found, the store resumed business.

Wasilla Police Chief Charlie Fannon told KMBQ that interviews with store employees suggest the threat could have been made by kids who were asked to leave the premises.

Fannon said police were following leads and will trace the call to determine where it came from.
