EL CAJON (CNS) - An East County Wal-Mart store was open and conducting business as usual Thursday following an apparent bomb hoax that prompted the closure of the store for awhile, authorities said.
A man called the store at 13487 Camino Canada around 6 p.m. Wednesday and whispered to a worker that he had planted a bomb, according to San Diego
County sheriff's Sgt. Curt Goldberg.
The manager of the store called authorities, and the store was evacuated, Goldberg said.
Several search teams of deputies and Wal-Mart employees were organized to look through the building but no suspicious devices were found, he said.
