BATON ROUGE - A person who made a bomb threat to a Walmart on Burbank Drive initially threatened a store in Burbank, California by mistake, police say.

Deputies were called to the Walmart on Burbank Drive near Bluebonnet Boulevard after 3 o'clock Wednesday. The store was cleared out, but no signs of a substantial threat to the store have been found at this time.

In a bizarre twist, the person responsible may have unintentionally called a threat into another Walmart all the way on the west coast. Police in Burbank, California said the threat to their local Walmart was a mistake, and the perpetrator apparently intended to call the Baton Rouge store in the first place. 

The sheriff's office is still investigating the incident.
