FLINT TOWNSHIP, MI — A 19-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after police say he made threatening statements at a Flint Township Walmart that led to the store being evacuated for more than two hours.
Flint Township police were dispatched at 10:38 a.m. Tuesday, June 8, to a suspicious situation at the Walmart store on Corunna Road.
Customers reported that a suspicious man was making threatening statements while inside of the store, according to a Flint Township Police Department news release.
Officers were unable to determine if the man’s statements were credible, so the store was evacuated.

Township police were assisted by the Michigan State Police, city of Flint Police Department, Grand Blanc Township Police Department, Genesee County Parks and Genesee County Sheriff’s Department.
The 19-year-old man has been lodged at the Genesee County Jail.
