The Altoona Police Department says a bomb threat was called in to the Walmart at 8th St. SW in Altoona at 7:23 a.m. The store was evacuated. The Altoona Fire Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, and Probation Parole 5th District helped in the investigation. No explosives were found at that store either.

Both stores are back open.
