A chocolate factory worker told police he hated his job and wanted to get fired, so he did the first thing that came to mind: call in a bomb threat.

Police say 22-year-old Kristofer Pregent stole a co-worker's cellphone and made the false threat under a different workers' name on Monday night at the Barry Callebaut chocolate factory in St. Albans.

Police said Pregent disposed of the cellphone in a toilet tank.

He first told police he received a bomb threat, then later said that didn't happen.

Pregent was charged with false public alarm, petit larceny and unlawful mischief.
