An airman assigned to Eglin Air Force Base allegedly texted a bomb threat to the base’s dining facility. Apparently he was sick and tired of creamed chipped beef.
Eglin Airforce Base allegedly received a bomb threat from an airman on Sunday.
According to spokeswoman Jasmine Porterfield, the airman who allegedly texted the threat targeting The Breeze Dining facility is assigned to the 96th Test Wing.
Now I’m no detective, but I imagine the base has a list of the personnel assigned there, as well as their cell phone numbers. The airman must spend a lot of time around gas fumes.
According to the base, the airman sent a text to a third party threatening to blow up The Breeze. That person then notified military officials, who responded to The Breeze around 8 p.m.
The dining hall was checked and cleared, but the story does not mention if this genius was arrested.
