Person of interest sought in Bronner's threat investigation

Posted: Updated:
FRANKENMUTH (WJRT) - (06/25/14) - Frankenmuth Police want to talk with a person in connection with a threat targeting Bronner's Christmas Wonderland.

It was Sunday afternoon when a Bronner's employee found the handwritten threat, forcing the store to close early.

The person police want to talk to appears to be a young man who is wearing a green shirt and appears to have a backpack.

Police interviewed store employees and one of the employees described a young man who looked like this in the area of the store where the threatening note was found.
     
Looking through the surveillance video, police believe this is the person the employee described and believe it's possible he had something to do with the note.
     
Frankenmuth Police Chief Don Mawer is not releasing the details of what the threat was, but he does confirm the Michigan State Police bomb sniffing dog searched the store on Sunday, and found nothing.

"We have him on video that's in that area where the note was written. We have him entering the store. We have him leaving the store. We have two independent witnesses that have provided information. We've developed sketches from from a sketch artist. Both of them resemble the person that's in the video," said Frankenmuth Police Chief Don Mawer.

Mawer says the person was in the store for about 30 minutes and didn't buy anything.

The FBI is also involved in this investigation.

If you believe you know who this person is, you are asked to call the Frankenmuth Police.

Detective Randy Flathau's number is 989-652-3430, extension 161.
