Bomb threat closes Bedford Walmart

BEDFORD — A bomb threat shut the Walmart on Colby Court for several hours Friday night.

Police responded to the store at 6:48 p.m., after a phoned-in threat prompted an immediate evacuation.

A state police K-9 unit was called to assist in searching the building, but nothing unusual was found, according to Sgt. Devon Kimball. Employees were allowed back in at 9:30 p.m., but the store remained closed for the rest of the night, he said.

This incident remains under investigation.
