The unidentified worker is a white coin maker, who was caught on surveillance video walking across the factory floor and placing the noose on his coworker’s chair.
The noose was made with rope intended to close coin bags once they’re full, according to the president of the mint workers union.
Another noose was also found tucked between two tree branches outside a Philadelphia medical building on Friday in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood.
