(Scroll down for video) A young man walked into a police station and used a pay phone to tell a 911 dispatcher that he was a terrorist, according to police in Oklahoma.

The Muskogee Police Department said that they have arrested 22-year-old Michael Prince Myers, after being accused of calling in a false bomb threat while at the police department.

Myers has been charged with one count of making a telephone bomb threat.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Tuesday, at around 3:30 a.m. Myers went to a pay phone at the Muskogee Police Department, and dialed 911.

He told a dispatcher that he was a terrorist, and he wanted to turn himself in. He then said that he had placed a bomb in the facility located at 112 S. Third St.

Police searched the department, and they found a suspicious item wrapped in tin foil, which later turned out to be just food.
