CREVE COEUR, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A 26-year-old St. Louis man is accused of making terroristic threats.

Mustafa Barimac’s employer, TephSeal, reported the threats to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who passed the information to the Creve Coeur Police Department on Friday.

According to court documents, around Nov. 25 Barimac told co-workers he was affiliated with ISIS and showed them a tattoo which he claimed to be ISIS. He allegedly also told co-workers he could have the building blown up by placing a phone call. 

Barimac reportedly admitted to police he made the comments, which would reach a group of about 25 people at work. 

Following the threats, the company was evacuated for a bomb search.

Members of the FBI assisted the Creve Coeur Police Department in the investigation into the alleged threats.

Saturday, Barimac was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat. His bond was set at $500,000.
