Anderson County man accused of threatening two schools

ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – An Anderson County man is in custody after making a threat to two local schools, according to police.

They say on Wednesday, KSP received a complaint that Dylan Jarrell, 20, was threatening and harassing a female residing in New Jersey.

While investigating they discovered that the suspect, Jarrell was previously questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in May over social media threats to a school in Tennessee, according to authorities.

Detectives interviewed Jarrell  late Thursday and found evidence of a credible and imminent threat to Shelby and Anderson County schools.

Police then notified officials at both districts and worked with administrators to determine a plan of action, according to investigators.

Police say a firearm, over two hundred rounds of ammunition, a Kevlar vest, a 100-round high capacity magazine, and a detailed plan of attack were also discovered in Jarrell’s possession.

Jarrell was arrested and charged with two counts of 2nd-degree terroristic threatening and one count of harassing communications, according to officials.

He is currently being held in the Shelby County Detention Center.
