11:50 EVENING UPDATE: 'All clear' given for both bomb threat locations


The Glasgow Police Department and the Kentucky Police Department have given the all-clear for both locations -- Walmart and ACK Controls -- impacted by bomb threats Tuesday evening.

KSP bomb-detection dogs were used to search the parking lots of both locations, as calls to Walmart indicated that's where the devices were, and no explosive devices were found.

The first call came into dispatchers at 8:25 from Walmart advising that an associate in the sporting goods department had taken a call stating tehre was a bomb in the parking lot at Walmart and at "the factory across the road," said Julie Anne Williams, public affairs officer for GPD.

Two minutes later, Walmart personnel called dispatch again to say that another call had been received specifying that the bombs were in the parking lots of the Walmart and ACK Controls, Williams said.

At approximately 10:05, GPD Chief Guy Turcotte announced to the Walmart evacuees who had been moved to the parking lot of South Central Bank across Veterans Outer Loop from the store that they could return to Walmart.

The KSP canine units then moved to ACK, and the all-clear was given there by 10:44 p.m. ACK employees had been asked to stay inside during the search and those who were just going to work during the time span were not allowed access to the parking lot, WIlliams said.
