Maine woman accused of fake threats against New Hampshire Walmart

A Maine female is facing charges for allegedly fabricating threats against a Walmart store in New Hampshire, according to court documents.

The Portsmouth Herald reported that the Portsmouth Police Department arrested the woman, whose identity has not been released, on a charge of criminal threatening.

The woman is accused of sending a series of threatening emails to Walmart management, according to the court documents. The emails purportedly contained profane language, racial slurs, and threats of violence against the store and its customers.

The emails prompted an investigation by local law enforcement. After a thorough inquiry, investigators determined that the threats were a hoax.

The Portsmouth Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division worked with the New Hampshire State Police and the FBI to identify the suspect.

The woman is currently being held at the Strafford County Jail, awaiting arraignment. If convicted, she could face up to seven years in prison.

The case is a reminder of the need for vigilance when it comes to threats of violence, even if they appear to be false. The public should take all threats seriously and report them to authorities immediately.
