Threat Update-After receiving numerous calls and messages in regards to the threats against Jessamine County Schools investigators worked throughout the night gathering information and evidence in the case. At 0521 hours Nicholasville Police arrested two individuals and charged them with Terroristic Threatening in the 2nd Degree.
This was a situation where the public immediatly did what they should have when they recognized a post on SnapChat that was a threat against Jessamine County Schools. The post was shared not only with law enforcment but with many others across the city,county and state. The information was crucial in develping the evidence needed to make the arrests.
As mentioned in my earlier post, we were fairly confident that Danny Cross was not involved in making the post but until we were able to make contact with him and other family members we could not come out and say that. All the evidence we have gathered indicates that he was not involved with the threats.
As stated earlier, we immediatly took this threat as serious and worked throughout the night to find out who the individuals were who had placed this post on social media. This was a perfect example of how the public and police came together to gather the evidence needed to make an arrest in this case. Again, I would like to thank all of those that reached out to us when they started receiving information. We value the safety of all persons in Nicholasville and will work to keep our community safe.
