ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department received two calls reporting bombs at Oakwood Mall and Walmart that the caller said were set to go off in minutes.

Police believe the call, which came in shortly after 5:54 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, were from the same person, who told police the devices would explode in 35 minutes.

Officials with Walmart Supercenter, 5505 W. Garriott; Walmart Neighborhood Market, 1018 N. Cleveland; and Oakwood Mall, 4125 W. Garriott, decided to evacuate “out of an abundance of caution,” Capt. Tim Jacobi said, adding at the time that police had no reason to believe the threats were credible.

The 71st Security Squadron from Vance Air Force Base helped search with an explosive-detecting dog, but nothing was found at any of the locations.
