On Sunday night, police responded to Flying J’s on State Road 18 for a bomb threat, which had been called in to the Wendy’s restaurant.
A press release from the Marion Police Department explains that a Wendy’s employee, Dustin Manis, answered the call, upon which he claims he heard a young male’s voice, saying “I placed a bomb in the bathroom, you have twenty minutes, good luck.”
The call came from a blocked number, so they weren’t able to determine exactly who made the threatening phone call.
The building was evacuated, and both police officers and fire personnel conducted a thorough search. They did not locate any bomb or suspicious package of any kind and eventually declared the building was safe.
