Kyle Wallum, 25, of West Seneca, was arrested at his home Saturday night and turned over to the Orchard Park Police for allegedly claiming there was a bomb in the Union Road pizzeria where he worked.
The bomb threat was reported to police by a manager of the Little Caesars Pizza on Union Road about 7:43 p.m. Saturday and the Erie County Sheriff's Bomb Squad was quickly dispatched. After a complete search of the pizzeria and an adjacent video rental store, the building was cleared by the Bomb Squad at about 8:28 p.m. and the two businesses reopened.
The pizzeria manager told police that he had some issues with Wallum earlier in the evening before Wallum left, came back and claimed there was a bomb in the building. Orchard Park Police contacted West Seneca Police, who took Wallum into custody about 9 p.m.
Wallum was arraigned in Orchard Park Town Court Sunday morning on a felony charge of second-degree falsely reporting an incident and released on $1,000 bail.
