An Eagan man who frightened his coworkers when he allegedly told them he wanted to blow up a local restaurant is now facing a criminal charge, according to a complaint issued by the Dakota County Attorney's Office.
Cameron Patrick Seefeldt, 23, was charged with one felony count of terroristic threats for his alleged role in the incident. If convicted, Seefeldt could face a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Eagan police were dispatched to a restaurant on Silver Bell Road in Eagan on Dec. 18, after a caller told police an employee at the restaurant threatened to blow up the building and kill everyone inside.
Officers spoke with several coworkers, who told police that Seefeldt made the threats the previous evening while working a shift at the restaurant. Upon overhearing the comments, one witness allegedly asked Seefeldt if he was joking, according to the complaint. Seefeldt allegedly told the witness he was not joking.
Another witness told police that Seefeldt said he planned to blow the building up when he was older, then made a comparison to 9/11.
Seefeldt initially denied making the comments, according to the complaint, but later admitted to police that he felt the business was corrupt and should be blown up. He allegedly told officers that he made the comments because he was tired and stressed out.
