CREVE COEUR, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged a 26-year-old local man over the weekend for allegedly issuing threats against his employer.

According to prosecutors, representatives from the vehicle prep store TephSeal, located in the 11800 block of Olive, contacted law enforcement to report an employee had made threats against the company.

The suspect, Mustafa Barimac, was arrested and charged December 3 with making a terroristic threat.

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

Barimac allegedly told his co-workers that he was a member of the terrorist group ISIS and said he "could place one phone call and have the place blown up."

Barimac remains in custody at the St. Louis County Justice Center on $500,000 bond.

Investigators do not believe there are any other suspects or persons of interest.
