STATESVILLE, N.C. -- Two bomb threats within two days prompted investigations at a Statesville Walmart this week.

An employee told police someone called in the threat. The person told the employee he wanted $1,000 on two pre-paid cards, and the numbers to each card. He also said he placed a bomb in the store, according to police.

The employee told detectives the man seemed to have trouble with English and spoke with a broken accent. The store was then evacuated.

Detectives were not able to find a threat.

A caller made the same threat with similar demands on Wednesday afternoon. Police have not found any threats.
