Workplace Threats Lead to Arrest of Wareham Man

A Wareham man is facing a felony charge after he made threats over the phone to cause extreme violence against his fellow workers.

Rogelio Lopez, Jr., 51, of 6 Apache Lane in Buzzards Bay was arrested Thursday night by Yarmouth Police. Earlier in the day, officers met with management of the Republic Waste Services, located at 61 Commonwealth Ave in South Yarmouth, regarding those threats. The company took immediate action, initially suspending Lopez and then terminating him on Thursday.

Lopez is scheduled for arraignment in Barnstable District Court on a charge of Felony Terroristic Threat.
