Worthington Division of Police officers responded to a complaint of telecommunications harassment at a business on the 300 block of Kertess Avenue at 3:16 p.m. Jan. 27. 

The business owner said he was receiving harassing messages from a former employee.

He told officers the former employee called him and made statements that he was going to be harmed or killed.

The former employee is incarcerated, according to police.

The owner told office there was never any notice mentioning that the call came from a correctional institution.
