Last updated on Friday, July 4, 2008

(LINTON) - The Linton Wal-Mart received a bit of a scare early yesterday morning.

The Greene County Daily World reports a bomb threat was called into the store around 4:00am yesterday morning.

Officers shut down the store for several hours while they scoured the building, but gave it the "all clear."

K-9 bomb squad units were called in from Crane to assist in the inspection, and the store was closed until about 1:00 yesterday afternoon.

Linton police detectives ask anyone with information to call the department at (812) 847-5463.
