Woman pleads no contest to threatening to blow up Va. Beach 7-Eleven


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A woman is guilty of threatening to blow up a 7-Eleven store in Virginia Beach after pleading no contest.

A spokesperson for the city of Virginia Beach said Crystal Mostek entered the plea in a hearing on Jan. 2.

Mostek, 33, was charged following an April 2018 incident where authorities said she walked into a store on Pleasure House Road, placed a device on the counter and told the clerk it was a bomb.

A Virginia Beach Fire Department spokesperson said Mostek threatened to blow up the store. It was later determined the device was not a bomb.

Mostek’s sentencing has been set for March 20.
