Searcy Police Walmart Arrest

Authorities this weekend announced they had foiled three potential mass shootings after arresting three men in different states who expressed interest in or threatened to carry them out.

All three cases, Connecticut, Florida and Ohio, were brought to the attention of authorities thanks to tips from the public.

Meanwhile, the Searcy Police Department is aware of the viral threats that are circulating on Facebook involving Walmart stores around the country. Although there has been no credible threat, it is still taken seriously by Searcy Police and Walmart Employees.

According to a Searcy Police Department Facebook post, officials say there was an incident on Friday at the Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Despite the rumors on local Facebook pages, the suspect did not have a gun. He also did not run.

He was in fact from Texas, and was arrested for a warrant out of Texas as well as given a Misdemeanor citation for giving a false name.
