STATESVILLE, N.C. —

Statesville police put extra officers on patrol Friday night in case a fourth bomb threat is called into the Walmart store there.

Someone has called the store the last three nights in a row demanding money and claiming they've planted a bomb inside.

Elizabeth Levitt was driving to the store when she saw people racing from the parking lot, and dozens of others standing outside the store.

"There were a lot of people getting out as fast as they could," she said. "All the employees were huddled together away from the store. It's kind of scary. All the Walmart employees were standing over by Red Lobster (restaurant) where the railing is, like they didn't know what to do."

Statesville police brought dogs to the store, but didn't find anything after the threats Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night.

Capt. Bryan Johnson believes it's part of a nationwide scam against Walmart stores, possibly originating overseas.

Well, the NSA should be right on this. But we never know, maybe they are making the calls. After all, it is the evil Walmart.

I am wondering if this is part of the “raise-the-minimum-wage” crowd and the fools who boycott McDs, et al, to double their pay.

It would certainly be a convenient way to do some shoplifting. With everyone running out, no one is going to check to see if someone is stealing anything.

If true, I think this may spread just like the KNOCKOUT GAME.

You are probably right on the money.

“Capt. Bryan Johnson believes it’s part of a nationwide scam against Walmart stores, possibly originating overseas.”

Not overseas, but in Chicago, or the White House.

The security cameras continue recording. When there’s been a bomb threat, I bet somebody will watch that footage.

I bet it’s the radical Nova Scotian separatists we’ve been hearing about in the news lately!

The accent of the extortionist. Of course, it could be faked.

This should be pretty easy to stop.

When’s the next Union meeting?

Something seems to be going round. Here in Ottawa, two Wal-Marts were evacuated due to bomb threats a few nights ago.

Originating overseas? WHAT? Sounds more like Chicago thuggery, IMO. Coming to a neighborhood near you!

Probably disgruntled ex-employees who are still seething because they got caught helping themselves to the merchandise.
