JANE, Mo. (KFSM) — Sheriff's deputies have evacuated a Walmart in Jane, Mo., after a bomb threat was made on the store, according to McDonald County Sheriff Michael Hall.

Deputies and fire personnel did a security sweep inside the store and nothing suspicious was found, Hall said.

Walmart management decided to reopen the store and customers were able to go back inside.

According to an eyewitness, police blocked off the entrances and exits to the store off of Hwy. 71 and would not allow anyone in or out.

There have been multiple ambulances and firetrucks on the scene since around 8 p.m. Monday (Sept. 9).

The investigation into who made the phone threat is still ongoing.
