Already an MO for some bank robbers, businesses now are reporting getting a call that there is a bomb in their facility from a person who then requests money to not explode it. Employees at a Belding, Michigan McDonalds were evacuated from the restaurant early July 25 after receiving a bomb threat. Around 8:30 a.m. the McDonalds at 1125 W. State St. received a call from a person saying there was a bomb in the bathroom. The caller said if the employees did not bring money to him at the front door, he would come into the restaurant and blow it up. The Belding Police Department and Ionia County Sheriff Department searched the restaurant, but found no evidence of a bomb in the area. The scene was cleared around 11 a.m. Authorities said this incident is similar to a bomb threat that was called in July 21 at a Wal-Mart in Comstock Park. In that instance, a man called the business, stating a bomb was in one of the store’s bathrooms. The Alpine Township fire chief stated the caller may have made some kind of demand for money as well.
