Re: Bomb Threat

 

On February 13, 2012 at 12:00pm Texarkana Arkansas Police Officers responded to 1305 Dudley, the Dollar General, in reference to a bomb threat complaint. Upon investigation, officers determined that an unknown suspect entered the business and walked around placing merchandise into a shopping cart. After a short time the suspect approached the register with the items but was unable to provide payment and was asked to leave. As the suspect was leaving the store he made reference to leaving a bomb inside the building. Officers did not locate any explosive devises in the business. It is believed that he made the comment after becoming disgruntled with store employees.

During the investigation, officers located the suspect in the area of the Dollar General. The suspect was identified as Cameron Soils, B/M 23yoa, of Texarkana. Soils was arrested for disorderly conduct, and is being held for mental evaluation.
