A man accused of calling a bomb threat into Colonial Coatings in Milford was trying to delay a woman from losing her job, police said.
Wilfredo Garcia, 22, of Bridgeport, called 911 from 66 Erna Ave. on Thursday, said, “Bomb, first floor,” then hung up the phone, police said.
Milford Police and the Connecticut State Police Bomb Squad secured the building, checked for explosive devices and found nothing, police said.
Police identified Garcia as the suspect and said he made the bomb threat in an attempt to delay a female acquaintance from losing her job at the business.
He was charged with falsely reporting an incident to police and breach of peace.
Garcia was able to post a $5,000 bond and is due in Milford Superior Court on Dec. 15.
