A woman was arrested on Wednesday after she allegedly threatened to blow up a 7-Eleven in Virginia. Crystal Mostek, 33, strode into the Virginia Beach, Virginia, convenience store, on Tuesday and was reported to have put a device on the counter.
She was then said to have allegedly told the store clerk that it was actually a bomb.
Virginia Beach Fire Department spokesman Art Kohn asserted that the woman threatened to blow up the store.
It was later determined that the device she sat on the counter wasn’t actually a bomb. The woman was charged with threatening to bomb and possession of a hoax device. A motive has not been released for the woman, who is still currently being held at the Virginia Beach Jail.
