Bomb Scare After Teens Arrested in Walmart Shoplifting
Two Gainesville 18-year olds, Mason Scott Beuning and Wolfe O’Meara, were detained around lunch-time Tuesday for shoplifting BBs, flare guns, and other bomb-making items, from the northeast Gainesville Walmart Supercenter. Gainesville Police investigators learned Beuning had manufactured a crude explosive device at his home, in the 31-hundred block of NW 4th Street. The Alachua County Sheriff’s Bomb Disposal Team and ATF Agents safely removed the device. Only Beuning was been charged related to the potential bomb.
