By: Zachary Meseck

NORWICH – A Greene man pleaded guilty in court on Monday, and told prosecutors he's willing to pay over $35,000 to a business he threatened – as restitution for added security costs.

Andrew P. Riley, 48, of Greene, pleaded guilty to making a terroristic threat, a class D felony, and has agreed to pay back over $35,000 in restitution to Raymond Corp. in Greene.

Riley was sentenced to serve four months of weekends at the Chenango County Correctional Facility, followed by five years of post-release supervision.

According to his indictment, on June 1, 2017, Riley called Raymonds and threatened to, "take his gun to the [business] and kill everybody."

The indictment states during a separate occasion on June 6, 2017, another person overheard Riley saying he wanted to blow up the business.
