Police: Disgruntled GMCR worker makes threats

Posted: Updated:

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters had a scare Monday after someone in the Waterbury call center received a threatening phone call.

Police said Alexander James Garrison Junior of Alburgh called and said because he didn't get a permanent job he was going to come to the Vermont plant and shoot a bunch of people. He did not specify which location.

The Waterbury Police said Garrison is a temporary employee of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and has a history of making threats in the past.   

"Coffee roasters took some great preventative measures -- part of it was closing a few retail locations in Waterbury and securing their buildings," said Waterbury Police Chief Joeby Feccia.

Outgoing CEO Larry Blanford and his replacement Brian Kelley were on campus Monday, heightening the risk of the threat. Garrison has not been cited.
