MARYSVILLE, CA - A Marysville Wal-Mart was evacuated Tuesday afternoon after a bomb threat.
A person called the Wal-Mart on North Beale Road around 4:30 p.m. and said a bomb is on the store's property. Yuba County sheriff's Capt. Ron Johnson said the store's management decided to evacuate the premises and called the sheriff's department.
When deputies arrived on scene, they helped evacuate the store and the parking lot.
A bomb squad from Beale Air Force Base and bomb sniffing dogs were called to the scene around 6:15 p.m., Johnson said. The dogs were able to clear the parking lot in about an hour and entered the store to search for a suspicious device.
Johnson said the dogs did not find anything suspicious and turned the store over to Wal-Mart around 8 p.m. The store opened to the public an hour later.
