UPDATE - 3:25P - According to Fournier, it was a landscaping crew not affiliated with the Guard that was working on the site. He’s not sure why they didn’t notify the Guard sooner about what they allegedly saw. He says the only thing he can think of is the landscaping crew is under no obligation to notify anyone.

As a result of the lag time, they will be doing an internal investigation and looking at how things could have been handled differently because he said they do “take every security threat seriously.”
