The Walmart on Madison Blvd. is now open after a bomb threat was called in Thursday morning.
Madison Police are working to determine who called in the threat but they told WAAY 31 they plan on prosecuting that person to the full extent of the law.
According to authorities a man called the store about a bomb threat inside just before 9:00 a.m. Thursday.
"This is the first time i've heard of anything in this area happening like that," said Paula Legate a Walmart shopper."I called my teenage daughters and told them not to come and told them to avoid this area this morning."
Madison Police advised people to do the same for nearly three house, after the call was made.
Police said they worked with the Huntsville Bomb Squad to check a suspicious item found inside the store.
"We certainly got out a specialized team and a specialized group that brought a lot of resources with them, including x-ray devices so you can x-ray suspicious items. There's a lot that goes into getting a bomb threat out," said Captain John Stringer.
Police told WAAY 31 no bomb was found and the store opened back up around noon Thursday.
"It disrupted several businesses, it disrupted traffic along Madison Blvd. today and ultimately put several people at risk," said Captain Stringer.
