Racine man allegedly made Halloween bomb threat to get time off

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man is free on bond, after he allegedly made a bomb threat at his workplace so he could get Halloween off. 

Prosecutors said 27-year-old Jacob Vanderhoef was out of vacation time -- so he left two threatening notes at Poclain Hydraulics.

Officials said one note was found two days before Halloween. It reportedly indicated that an explosive was timed to go off sometime during the week, and that authorities should, "Catch me if you can." 

Court records showed that he posted a $2,000 cash bond. A preliminary hearing is set for November 20th on two felony counts of making bomb scares.
