Walmart Bomb Threat Suspect Already Waiting Trial For Similar Charge

Police in Oklahoma say that the man arrested over the weekend for phoning in a bomb threat to an Oklahoma City Walmart is currently awaiting trial for doing the same thing to an employment agency office only a few months earlier.

The 46-year-old man suspected of threatening to blow up the Walmart was arrested on Sunday and is currently being held in lieu of $5,000 bail. He allegedly called into the store around 2:45pm on Sunday, prompting managers to evacuate the store.

Meanwhile, back in November, the same guy had been nabbed by police for calling in a bomb threat to an employment agency in Edmond, OK. He’s scheduled to have a pretrial conference in that case on April 27.

What is it about Walmart that attracts repeat offenders? You’ll probably remember that the teen in New Jersey caught making a racist announcement over the Walmart PA system had reportedly done the same thing weeks earlier at the same store.
