Meriden man charged with making threats at Durham business



DURHAM — A Meriden man faces charges after police said he made threats Thursday at a business where he was employed.

Jeffrey Wilson, 46, of 71 Catlin St., Apt. 76, was charged with second-degree breach of peace. He was released without bond and is scheduled to appear in Middletown Superior Court on March 28. 

State police responded to Durham Manufacturing, 205 Main St., around 11:20 a.m. after Wilson got upset at work and reportedly “made generalized statements about shooting fellow employees,” state police said. 

Wilson left the business before police arrived. Nearby schools sheltered in place as a precaution, police said.

When Wilson was taken into custody, he told police he made the statements, but did not intend to harm anyone.

Wilson was terminated from the company, police said.
