Police in Missouri investigating the string of bomb threats that triggered evacuations and searches for dangerous devices at 11 Midwest Walmart locations now say they have the phone number the call was made from.
“We have the telephone number that came in. We are actively pursuing and investigating that number at this time. I do believe all of these are connected,” Fredricktown, Missouri Police Chief Eric Hovissaid said.
In total eight stores across Missouri received bomb threats, while three more store locations, one in Leavenworth, Kansas and two in Lawrence, Kansas, also received similar calls. The Fredricktown Walmart received a call at 6:45 p.m. on Friday, according to ABC17. No devices were found at any of the stores.
