The call came in late Saturday evening (7/30) and it cleared out the big box stores in Bismarck.

Both North and South Bismarck locations had to be cleared just before 8 p.m. Saturday night because of false bomb threats. According to Bismarck Police, the false calls came from outside the state.

Bismarck Police evacuated both Bismarck locations of Wal-Mart and swept the locations searching for explosives. Nothing was found and the stores resumed normal activates about an hour later.
