Regional Walmart Stores Receive Bomb Threats

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Three Walmart stores in Kansas were temporarily closed after someone phoned in bomb threats, two days after at least eight false threats were called in to stores in Missouri. KSHB reports that Lawrence police were called just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday to both of that city's Walmart stores after managers received threats from a male caller. Someone called a store in Gladstone, Mo., just before 4:30 a.m. Sunday to say a bomb had been planted at a store in Leavenworth, Kan. That store was emptied out while investigators looked for explosives but found none. Similar threats were made Friday to stores in at least eight Missouri communities, and a store in Claremore, Oklahoma was briefly closed Wednesday after a threat there, as well.
