A man has been charged after he made a threat about having a bomb inside a Walmart store.

Nitro Police say they arrested Leonard Simpson after he made threats about having a bomb in his backpack while inside the Walmart in Nitro.

They say a Subway employee questioned Simpson about what was in his backpack, to which he replied, "You will know when it goes boom.”

Customers were asked to leave the store and police did recover the man’s backpack. They did not find any bomb materials inside.
