Police: 11 Wal-Mart Bomb Threats Most Likely Connected

A total of 11 Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) locations received bomb threats over the weekend, and police believe that all cases are connected. Eight Wal-Mart stores across Missouri and three in Kansas received similar phone calls warning that explosive devices were on premises.

“We have the telephone number that came in,” Fredricktown, Mo., Police Chief Eric Hovissaid told ABC News. “We are actively pursuing and investigating that number at this time. I do believe all of these are connected.”

The stores were evacuated after the calls came in, and each location was thoroughly investigated for bombs. No devices were found.
