Jeff Weiner from The Orlando Sentinel reported that an Orange County Florida man has been arrested and accused of calling in a bomb threat to a Wendy’s restaurant. The bomb threat call occurred on February 11, 2021 and law enforcement began investigating that day after an employee filed a report about the incident.
Law enforcement arrested 33 year-old Yassir Baroudi on the charge of false report of a bombing, with bail set at $2,500. It is reported that the caller made multiple calls to the Wendy’s location before the employee’s manager said to call the police and make a report. Law enforcement evacuated the restaurant and conducted a search for any explosives on the premises, but none were found.
Investigators were able to ascertain the caller’s phone number and that the caller had placed an order through Uber Eats. The Sheriff’s Office issued a subpoena to Uber Eats, a food delivery app, requesting additional information about the account used to make the order. The information obtained from the subpoena led law enforcement to Mr. Baroudi who was arrested at his home on March 3, 2021.
