To anyone with questions or concerns regarding the 16 year old charged today due to threats made at Alexander Central High School: The decision was made to allow this young man to turn himself in after he cooperated and admitted his actions. While I am certain this will upset some, I challenge you to understand there are a multitude of reasons for the decision including the legal considerations surrounding those who may have committed crimes and law enforcement interviews. In addition and more importantly, the fact remains he is 16 years old, has never been arrested, and he admitted to doing something completely stupid. After speaking with Chief Dennis James and considering everything we learned about the young man, his family, his ability to carry out the threat, his intent, and his reasoning behind his actions over the past week while working on this case; we tried to determine a legal, professional, and fair approach to dealing with the situation. I am a detective not a judge, a juror, or an executioner, nor would I want to be. Therefore, for those who choose to Monday morning quarterback the decisions that were made in the least subjective way considering all the facts available, rather than emotion; I wish the world were perfect. However, if it were, we would not have to worry about crime in general. Finally, I would be more than happy to speak with anyone that has questions or concerns, as would Chief James and you are welcome to contact either of us at (828) 632-2218 or through my email at ljohnson@taylorsvillenc.com. Thank you, Det. Sgt. Lisa Johnson

Counterfeit Money!!! The Taylorsville Police Department has encountered multiple $100 bills that are not US currency. The bills are clearly marked "FOR MOTION PICTURE USE ONLY". We would like all business and cashiers to be on the look out for theses bills. While being in possession of these bills may not be legal, attempting to use the bills would be obtaining property by false pretense. If you have any information or questions; please feel free to contact the Taylorsville Police Department.
