INDIANAPOLIS — A Greenwood man faces felony charges of intimidation after police say he sent text messages threatening employees of an Indianapolis food bank

Rodrigo Limon, 25, is accused of messaging a woman who works at Gleaners Food Bank on Waldemere Avenue, saying he was going to come and “shoot the place up.”

An affidavit in the case said Limon sent “100-300 messages” over approximately three days that included threats against the food bank, the woman and an acquaintance of the woman.

While the woman was reporting the threats to her employer, Limon sent a message that said “I’m going to come at your lunch time,” the affidavit said.

Gleaners canceled its food distribution Sept. 22 because of receiving what they called “a credible threat.” They evacuated the building and canceled distribution at the Community Cupboard. All warehouse operations were also canceled. Normal operations resumed the next day.
