(AMMON, ID) — A bomb squad was called to the Ammon Walmart following a report of two suspicious packages found in the store over the weekend. The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office says the packages were empty and posed no threat to the public. This came after a similar incident was reported in Rexburg Saturday. A caller there claimed that there were two backpacks loaded with explosives sitting somewhere in the store. Authorities say it all appears to be part of a series of recent prank calls. Investigations for each of the incidents are still ongoing.
