According to Whiteland Fire Company, crews were standing by Sunday afternoon shortly after 1 p.m. at the Walmart in Exton, where there was reportedly a bomb threat. The store was evacuated at Station and Main Street in Exton. Indian Run Street was closed as a result. A statement issued from the retail giant read: “What happened in our store today is troubling.  We take this seriously and cooperated with police as they evacuated the store and then confirmed that the bomb threat was a hoax. We’re open again for business and apologize for any inconvenience this caused our customers.  We are working with law enforcement as they look for those responsible.”  A spokesperson for West Whiteland Township Police was not available for comment.
