A Warehouse Market in Turley closed for more than two hours this morning after receiving a bomb threat.

The threat was reported to the Tulsa County Sheriff's dispatch center Friday at about 8:40 a.m. Deputies evacuated the store at 6230 N Peoria Ave. and called in bomb-sniffing dogs from the Tulsa Police Department to check out the building.

"They took their K-9s inside, and they were able to determine that there was no actual explosives or bomb within the facility," said Deputy Justin Green.

The store reopened a bit after 11 a.m. TCSO has not made any arrests, but Green said there are persons of interest.

"This morning, they located a shoplifter inside of the location, and they did kick that shoplifter out. So, it could have been retaliation. Also, they terminated an employee who was quite disgruntled just recently," Green said.
