Some scary moments for the customers at the Erickson’s Sentry Market in Madras Wednesday night.

 

Around 7:15 p.m. Store Manager Josh Bibler received a call from an anonymous man.

 

"Somebody called on the phone and said they put a bomb in the store and it was going to blow up. I called the cops and evacuated everybody out of the store and let the cops search the store."

 

Bibler says people understood and immediately left the store and police quickly searched the store, did not find anything and within the hour, everyone returned to the store.

 

He says he did not recognize the man's voice, and didn't know why the store was chosen as a target; but police advised him to take note of the phone number if another call comes in.
