FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 31, 2018 Terroristic Threatening Investigation On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, the Shepherdsville Police Department initiated a Terroristic Threatening investigation after receiving information from the Bullitt County Public School System. This morning a suspended Bullitt Central High School employee entered the school and spoke with a school administrator. The administrator advised the employee that she was not allowed to be on school property and to leave. The employee left, only to re-enter the school at a different entrance. The employee eventually left the property on her own. The suspended employee then sent a text message to another school employee in which she made threats toward the school. Bullitt Central High School was placed on soft lockdown as a precaution and an officer was stationed at the school. Detectives from the Shepherdsville Police Department began surveillance on the suspect as other investigators gathered the facts of the case. An arrest warrant was obtained and the suspect was taken into custody around 1:00pm this afternoon. The suspect was lodged in the Bullitt County Jail. Dusty Witherspoon, 35 of Shepherdsville, was arrested on charges of Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree and Criminal Trespass 2nd Degree. It is important to note that at no time today was the safety of the students at Bullitt Central in question. The decision by school administrators to go on soft lockdown was timely and appropriate. Further, the cooperation between school administrators and law enforcement was vital in providing a quick resolution to this incident. We are grateful for the support and assistance we regularly receive from the Bullitt County Public Schools. The safety of our community is a priority and all threats against our schools will be taken seriously. If anyone has information about this incident and has not yet come forward, we ask that you call 502-921-1000 to speak with an investigator.

Vehicle Pursuit / Stolen Vehicle Investigation On September 18, 2018 at 2:23pm a Shepherdsville police officer observed a vehicle being operated in the 500 block of W. Blue Lick Road with expired registration. As the officer was pulling out into traffic, the suspect vehicle pulled onto a side street to evade him. The officer continued to search for the vehicle and located it within a few minutes. Our officer initiated a traffic stop on Bullitt Creek Road. The suspect stopped but then fled into the subdivision at a high rate of speed. After a brief chase, the suspect exited the vehicle and was taken into custody. The suspect vehicle had not been placed in park and it subsequently crashed into a tree. Officers determined that the suspect vehicle had been reported stolen to the Louisville Metro Police Department. Further investigation led them to the 200 block Boardwalk Avenue where a second stolen vehicle was recovered. A search warrant was also served at the location of the second stolen vehicle and officers recovered suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Aaron Jarvis, 41 of Shepherdsville, was arrested on charges of No Registration Plates, Fleeing or Evading Police 1st Degree, No Operators License, and Receiving Stolen Property u/$10,000.

We have received complaints about the parking situation on Saturdays at Frank E. Simon Park during soccer season. As a reminder, vehicles are not allowed to park in the grass on the west side on the road as you enter from KY44. There are multiple signs in that grassy area that say no parking. There is ample parking available during soccer in the marked spaces on the east side of the road, the grass lot to the south of the fields, and the gravel lot which is located to the south of the grass lot. Parking along the west side of the roadway causes the following issues: 1- It damages the grass. 2- It restricts the ability for vehicles to pass on the narrow road. 3- It makes it difficult for the legally parked vehicles on the east side of the road to back out of their parking spots. Have a safe week!
