East County Wal-Mart reopens after bomb scare

Posted: Updated:

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.
