Officers were dispatched just before 9 a.m. Friday to the Dollar General on First Street in reference to a report of a bomb.
According to Cmdr. Lindell Smith of the APD, a known individual had informed a Dollar General employee there was a bomb under the store.
As the store is built on a concrete base with no crawl space beneath, the likelihood was slim, but officers checked the store regardless and did not locate a bomb.
Smith said the person issuing the warning was likely experiencing a “loss of control, reality of perspective.” He says charges are possible.
