Brittany Duncan, spokeswoman for the Woodstock Police Department, said no bombs were found after a sweep of the building, and police are investigating the source of the call.
“At about 7 p.m. a bomb threat call was made into the Target over at Woodstock Square,” Duncan said Wednesday. “As a precautionary measure the Target store was evacuated, all individuals inside the store were evacuated.”
Woodstock Police Special Operations Supervisor Sgt. Shane Collie and his dog K-9 Mann, along with two other K-9s from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, did a sweep of the store that lasted about two hours, but did not find a bomb, Duncan said.
“Around 9 p.m. Target did reopen, and our investigators are following up on the origin of the call right now,” Duncan said.
The Target store is located at 149 Woodstock Square Avenue at Highway 92 in Woodstock.
Duncan said the investigation is ongoing.
