Sedalia Police and Pettis County Sheriff’s Report: Morning of June 21
Last night, KOMU reported that the Marshall WalMart closed as a result of a possible I.E.D. The Whiteman Air Force Base Bomb Squad was called out and around 10 p.m., an official with the Marshall Police Department said Marshall’s Wal-Mart was reopened following the bomb scare on Wednesday. Sergeant Roger Gibson said the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team from Whiteman Airforce base thought the cylindrical object wasn’t an I.E.D., contrary to initial worries. The object was handed over to the Marshall Police Department. Gibson said the device looked so much like a bomb that the crew from the air force base asked to have the object back after the investigation to help train future crews on what an I.E.D. could look like.
