Authorities say a northern New Jersey Wal-Mart store that received a bomb threat three days ago has been evacuated again.

Police officials tell The Record of Woodland Park that the Wal-Mart at Harmon Meadow Cove shopping plaza in Secaucus was evacuated around 1:50 p.m. Thursday.

Police have not yet said what prompted Thursday's evacuation.

The same Wal-Mart was evacuated three days ago after a bomb threat was phoned in. About 700 people were evacuated from the store around 2 p.m. Monday. A search found no explosives or other incendiary devices.

Authorities were investigating whether the New Jersey incidents were related to at least a dozen similar threats that have been received at Wal-Marts in Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri in recent days.

No explosives were found in those incidents.
