WOODLAND PARK, Colo. — The threat delivered to a Colorado Walmart may have been a prank call coming from almost 1,500 miles away, but the the police who showed up at the doors of three Pennsylvania teens had anything but tomfoolery on their minds.
According to a release from the Woodland Park Police Department, three male juveniles from Natrona Heights, Penn. are believed to have called in a bomb threat at a Walmart in the Colorado mountain town last week.
The threatening call was received at 10 p.m. on March 15, and with the assistance of Verizon Wireless, Woodland Park dispatchers were able to trace it to Pennsylvania.
The Harrison Township Police Department took control of the case, as they have jurisdiction in the area, and said one 15-year-old male admitted to making the threat along with two other friends.
The press release indicated that charges have not yet been filed against the three juveniles, but that the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office could decide to do so if they see fit.
