Today local Wal–Marts received more bomb threats bringing the total to five in less than a week.

Customers as well as business owners near the stores say they've had enough.

The first threat came in about 9:26 Thursday morning to the North Avenue Walmart followed shortly by another bomb threat to the Rimrock Walmart.

Police say a man called both Wal–Marts and said that a bomb was in the building and was set to go off in one hour. Police say they treat every threat the same.

Police say they are continuing to investigate the threats, and say anyone with information is urged to call the police department or the anonymous tip line at 970-241–STOP.
