Update: Highland Village police complete search of Walmart after bomb threat

The Walmart store in Highland Village will reopen Monday evening after the Highland Village Police Department thoroughly investigated a bomb threat.

Store employees told police they received the threat via a phone call about 12:30 p.m. Monday, according to a news release from the city of Highland Village. Bomb investigators responded to the scene, evacuated the store and conducted an investigation.

Similar threats at Walmart stores around the country have been reported Monday, and those threats were unsubstantiated, but HVPD took the threat seriously. After several hours, the department determined that this threat was also unsubstantiated.

The Walmart store will resume normal operations, with plans to reopen early Monday evening.
