RENO, Nev. (AP) - A disgruntled Reno Walmart employee has been
arrested on suspicion of threatening to shoot his supervisor and
plant a bomb inside the store.
Police say 31-year-old Justin Wilt made the threats to
co-workers Monday after being scolded for taking an unapproved
two-hour lunch break.
Wilt is accused of saying that if he were fired, he would do a
"better" job than former Walmart employee John Gillane, who is
serving a 96-year prison term for an October 2010 shooting rampage
at the same store.
Gillane shot and wounded three supervisors.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Wilt was arrested Wednesday and
freed from the Washoe County Jail later that day after posting
$25,000 bail on a felony charge of making a bomb threat.
Wilt has an unlisted home phone number.
