ST. ALBANS, Vt. -

A man claiming to be a terrorist caused a scare in St. Albans Wednesday morning.

Police say Radu Chereches, 47, of South Carolina, walked into a business at 44 Main Street and told the people inside he was a terrorist. He said the nearby Passport Center would not allow him to enter with his two large backpacks, so he wanted to leave his two large backpacks at the business. The business declined and called police.

Officers caught up to Chereches down the street. After determining his backpacks containing nothing dangerous, police arrested Chereches for creating a false public alarm. He is being held for lack of bail.
