A man and his sister made a trail through an IKEA parking lot with flour for a running club. Someone thought it was “the terrorist” and called 911. The two face felony charges.
Mayoral spokeswoman Jessica Mayorga said the city plans to seek restitution from the Salchows, who are due in court Sept. 14.
“You see powder connected by arrows and chalk, you never know,” she said. “It could be a terrorist, it could be something more serious. We’re thankful it wasn’t, but there were a lot of resources that went into figuring that out.”
What is wrong with people? Terrorist? Yes, the terrorists are going to sprinkle anthrax around IKEA because that’s how they roll. If they had sprinkled anthrax on the road, you’d have to get on the ground and sniff it like cocaine to catch it.
