A Stafford woman went too far in expressing her displeasure with the Walmart in North Stafford, police said.

Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy said Deputy Josh "Bo" Truslow responded after receiving a call about a disturbance.

A woman had been very upset by what she deemed poor service and was yelling at employees and harassing other customers, police say.

During the tirade, Kennedy said, the woman complained about employees sitting around and doing nothing.

She threatened to "blow up" the store so that no one would have a job and they all would have more time to stand around and do nothing, police say.

Employees pointed out the suspect after Truslow got on the scene. Truslow stopped the woman and she admitted yelling in the store about the lousy service she had received. She also said one of the employees had threatened her.

Gena Annette Banks-Bond, 25, was charged with threatening to bomb, a felony, and placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail.

She was also barred from the Walmart, Kennedy said.
