Madison County Sheriff’s Office charges man for making school threats
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office arrested Darren Pullen, 39 of Huntsville, and charged him with two counts of terrorists threats after he phoned two separate Huntsville City School campuses on Tuesday making threats.
Sheriff’s Office investigators attached to both the FBI North Alabama Violent Crimes Task Force and the North Alabama Safe Streets Task Force utilized the resources of the Sheriff’s Office and FBI to quickly locate Pullen and ensure that there was no danger to either of the campuses. The investigation revealed that Pullen had made phone calls to both campuses making threats that included bomb threats.
There were no suspicious packages or devices found at either campus and they were able to return to normal daily activities.
Sheriff Kevin Turner stated, “The safety of our students and staff is a priority, regardless of what school they attend or system they are a part of. The quick resolution to this case is another example of the importance of partnering with other law enforcement agencies at every level to ensure that our community is as safe as possible”.
