Supermarket Employee Calls In Fake Bomb Threat To Miss Work

Now she has a real excuse for missing work.

Via NY Daily News:

An employee of Wild Oats Market and her pal face charges of calling in a fake bomb threat so she could skip out on work early.

Emily Sziribik, 21, and friend Jacob Shea, also 21, put the harebrained scheme into action June 4, sending the Williamstown, Mass., store into chaos, The Berkshire Eagle reported.

Shea called in the threat to the Route 2 store around 6:30 p.m., according to David Durfee, a Wild Oats general manager.

“It was fairly specific and we asked everyone to leave the building,” Durfee told the Daily News. “The store is open until 8. We weren’t able to get back in that evening.”

A Wild Oats manager dialed 911. The Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad and authorities immediately rushed to the scene.

The bomb threat was declared a hoax when no explosives were found on the premises, according to a criminal complaint filed by Williamstown Police Officer Shaun William.

As time ticked away, investigators retrieved phone records from Wild Oats and traced the call back to a Bennington, Vt. residence which led them to Shea and Sziribik.

The dynamic duo allegedly confessed to cooking up the explosive plan so Sziribik could get out of work early, police said.

Sziribik had quit a few weeks before cops discovered she was behind the plot, Durfee exclusively told the Daily News.

She would have most likely been fired if she was still employed, the manager said.

Sziribik and Shea pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Northern Berkshire District Court to single counts of making a bomb threat. Both were released on their personal recognizance and will appear in court for a pre-trial hearing on Sept. 30.

You can’t be serious!!!
