SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police say they are continuing to investigate last weekend's bomb threat that was called in to the Walmart at 2702 N. Salisbury Boulevard.

Police said that at around 10 p.m. Saturday, April 12, an unidentified male called and threatened to blow up the store.  Management had already started the evacuation when police arrived and officers helped facilitate this until the store was empty.

Police said extensive exterior and interior searches took place on the property by several explosive-detecting K-9 teams from the region. The search took about one hour and officers did not locate any evidence of explosives. Walmart resumed normal operations at 12:30 a.m. Sunday.   

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office and Delaware State Police assisted Salisbury police during this incident.

Police said there is no evidence linking this incident to the March 28 bomb threat at the Centre at Salisbury mall. However, police said the investigation is still ongoing and information is still being gathered.

Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of the suspect caller should contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776. Crime Solvers will pay up to $1,000 for tips that lead to arrest.
