Authorities say a bomb threat that resulted in the evacuation of the Laramie Kmart turned out to be a false alarm.

According to Commander Cushman at the Laramie Police Department, the LPD received word of a bomb threat at the Laramie Kmart located at 750 N. Third Street at about 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, July 27.

Commander Cushman says officials arrived on the scene and evacuated the building before doing a search. Nothing was found during the examination of the building, and people were allowed to go inside after it was complete.

Those working at Kmart said business was only affected by the threat during the evacuation and search of the building which was completed around 12"30 p.m., although the store did close later in the day during a power outage.
