KEMAH -- Police  are taking into custody a man connected to a possible bomb threat at the Wal-Mart at FM 518 and State Highway 146.

Police and fire units from several agencies have blocked all access to the parking lot of the store. 

According to authorities on the scene, a man threatened a clerk at the Murphy USA gas station earlier this morning. After the man was arrested, police searched the Nissan Sentra the man was driving and found a suspicious package.

Texas City, Pasadena and La Porte police are assisting with the suspected bomb. A robotic bomb disposal unit is being used.
