CORNWALL – City police are hoping the public can help identify a man they’d like to speak with in relation to a weekend bomb threat at Walmart.

Customers had to clear out of the store on Saturday afternoon (July 18) for just over an hour after a customer made a comment about a bomb being in the store.

Police and store officials turned up nothing.

On Wednesday, police released this photo of a man (below) in a motorized wheelchair, who they believe may have information key to the investigation.

If you know the person you’re asked to call Det. Const. Tommy MacKay at 613-933-5000 extension 2789 or the anonymous tip line at extension 2404.
