Did you know that one disgruntled customer could cause so much chaos? Evidently he can when he calls in a bomb threat to a large retailer located in a busy area.
That was the case Saturday when Wal-Mart in New Martinsville was closed down for over two hours. Not only were people not able to do their shopping at that location, but ball games had to be moved from the Hydro fields as a safety measure. Roadways were blocked. The traffic was atrocious. And of course above all the inconvenience was the very real threat of personal and property damage.
Emergency responders risked their lives over what was apparently a threat made by an angry customer. We certainly hope the authorities can discover who incited this chaos and charge them with the appropriate crimes.
