VPD seeks out threat suspect

Aaron Kirk Aaron Kirk
VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The Valdosta Police Department responded to two terroristic threats Tuesday, and was on the lookout for the criminal Wednesday.

One threat was made against the Rite Aid at 320 N. Oak Street Ext. The other threat was made against the Walmart at 340 Norman Drive. 

Both locations received telephone calls from a man who said that he was going to drive up in a black vehicle loaded with a bomb and blow the stores up. 

Officers staked out both locations, but no vehicle matching the description was seen. 

They think whoever called in the threats was an irate customer.  "One of the stores related that they believe it had been a disgruntled customer. They're not sure, exactly, who it was but it's a possibility that it was a customer that was upset for some reason," said Valdosta Police Lt. Aaron Kirk.

Police do not believe this is connected to the bomb threats called in to both Valdosta Walmarts back in December.

Anyone having any further information regarding this crime or any other crime is urged to contact the Valdosta Police Department at 229-293-3145 or can remain anonymous at 229-293-3091.
