RICHMOND, Texas -- A disgruntled customer’s phone call forced workers and customers to evacuate the Walmart on FM 1640, Richmond police said early Tuesday.

It was around 8:40 a.m. when a woman called the store and told the worker they had 15 minutes to evacuate the building because she was going “blow the place up.”

Authorities responded and swept the building and nothing hazardous was found.

Customers were allowed back in the store less than 45 minutes later.
