Racine man sentenced for making bomb threat to get Halloween off from work

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Racine man will have plenty of time off in jail for making a bomb threat to have a day off.

28-year-old Jacob Vanderhoef was sentenced Friday to 90 days in jail and three years of probation for the bomb threat.

Prosecutors say Vanderhoef wanted Halloween off, but was out of vacation days… so he left two threatening notes at his workplace at Poclain Hydraulics.

Vanderhoef was also ordered to pay over $4,000 to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office and Raymond Fire and Rescue for its bomb squad response.
