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.
