Wal Mart Blairsville bomb threat a hoax


Shoppers at Blairsville’s Wal Mart Super Center were rushed out of the building last week due to a suspicious package found in the store.

A store employee saw something unusual and immediately notified Management on Duty (MOD). Law enforcement authorities were notified as approximately 100 personnel and customers were requested to leave the business location at once.

Upon arrival, Lt. Daren Osborne, Union County Sheriff’s Department Investigation division, contacted Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to assist with the incident.

GBI safely dismantled the suspicious package concealing it was a confetti popper similar to the one pictured.

The popper, a hand-held tube of compressed air and confetti, had no packaging label on it to signify it was a toy item thus lending the air of a ‘suspicious package’.
