Let me preface by saying this is probably completely unrelated to manufactured spending at CVS, but one CVS store in Princeton received a phone call demanding that the person be given 10 Green Dot Money cards.
Per this news article, An unknown male called a CVS on Nassau Street Monday, threatening to detonate three hydrogen bombs if he did not receive 10 $500 prepaid money cards, police said.
Princeton Police spoke on the phone with the caller, telling him he would not receive any Green Dot Money Cards, Sgt. Steven Riccitello said in a news release. When the man heard the news, he said, “OK,” and hung up the phone, Riccitello said.
The man told the CVS Pharmacy manager around 3:40 p.m. he had bombs in the area of the 172 Nassau St. store, Riccitello said.
It appears that the bomb threat was not real, but was taken seriously as police were involved. The story doesn’t state on what happened to the caller and what charges he may face.
