Walmart in Apopka cleared after bomb threat, police say

APOPKA, Fla. – The evacuation has been lifted on Monday at a Walmart in Apopka after a bomb threat, according to police.

The Walmart at 1700 S. Orange Blossom Trail was evacuated around 1 p.m. after someone called the Walmart and said there was bomb inside the store, according to Apopka police.

"I was just going around getting my stuff. I was heading to the auto center because I have some tires that are there that just came in, and as I was approaching the tire center a lady very calmly said, 'Everybody needs to leave the store," said shopper Scott Humphrey. "There were hundreds of people, but it was very orderly, it wasn't very chaotic. 

Humphrey said the evacuees were later ordered to leave the property.

"When it first happened, they let us stay out in the parking lot," Humphrey said. "After about a half hour in, they made us move out here off the premises."

The store was cleared just before 4 p.m. 

No other details have been released.
