SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Employees at the Kohl's department store in Springfield evacuated after a bomb threat Tuesday afternoon.
Store employees called Springfield police just after 5 p.m. Police said a man, later identified as Wesley Dockery, 34, walked in, saying there was a bomb in the store.
Employees told police they saw Dockery leave the store, and he was heading north.
University of Oregon Police responded with a bomb dog to check for explosives. The store reopened after no explosives were found, but Dockery was still at large.
Then at around 10 p.m. a bus driver told police he spotted a person matching Dockery’s description near the entrance of Best Buy.
Springfield police arrived, and Dockery was taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct.
Kohl’s was expected to open Wednesday as usual.
