Bomb Threats At Two Locations Prompt Evacuations

Two bomb threats less than ten hours apart forced the evacuation of two locations in Johnston County . The first bomb threat was phoned in just before 8pm Wednesday at Flanders Precision-Aire on Wal-Pat Road in Smithfield . The facility was evacuated after someone called saying there was a bomb inside. Emergency workers searched the building before allowing employees back inside. As a precaution, train traffic was temporarily halted near the facility. Just before 6am Thursday, Wal-Mart on US70 in Clayton was briefly evacuated following a telephone bomb threat, according to Police Chief Glen Allen. Chief Allen said investigators have a suspect in the Clayton hoax. At this time, there is no evidence connecting the two incidents.
