A Rochester man has pleaded guilty to making bomb threats against Kodak, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Omer Fadhel Saleh Mohammed made the plea before Judge Charles Siragusa. Prosecutors say Mohammed called 911 three times on September 24, 2012. They say he told the operator his acquaintances were terrorists and were going to blow up Kodak.

Prosecutors say he made an additional 911 call on January 24 of this year saying an acquaintance had hidden explosives and planned to use them to bomb Kodak. Emergency crews were dispatched each time, but prosecutors say they never found bombs or other evidence.

Mohammed faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced in April.
