CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man is jailed on $500,000 cash bond after being accused of telling co-workers he was affiliated with the Islamic State group and could have their auto-detailing job site blown up by making a phone call.

St. Louis County prosecutors charged 26-year-old Mustafa Barimac on Sunday with making a terrorist threat, a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison.

Police in suburban St. Louis’ Creve Coeur say Barimac made the threat Nov. 25 to fellow employees of Teph Seal, showing them a tattoo he claimed was related to IS.

A police investigator wrote in a probable-cause statement accompanying the criminal complaint that Barimac admitted making the threat.

Police say a search of the business uncovered no explosives.

Online court records don’t show whether Barimac has an attorney.
