Auburn Hills — A 39-year-old man was arraigned Friday on charges of making terroristic threats after he allegedly called police to threaten area businesses, including his own workplace.

Flint resident Reginald Antwuan Badon allegedly called 911 around 6:45 a.m. Monday with threats to harm employees at Inalfa Systems on Pacific Drive, police said Friday in a press release. He also threatened his workplace, Flexible Products on Auburn Court.

Officers responded to both locations to investigate. Inalfa Systems chose to evacuate their building while Flexible Products was put under lock down, police said.

Also locked down were an unspecified number of Avondale schools located near Flexible Products, police said.

Investigators tracked the threats to Badon, an employee at Flexible Products on Aurburn Court. No one was injured in the incident.

Badon was arraigned Friday in 52/3rd District Court on a felony charge of making a false report or threat of terrorism, police said. He remained incarcerated Friday in the Oakland County Jail in lieu of a $150,000 cash/surety bond.

If convicted, Badon faces up to 20 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $20,000.
