Schools On Alert After Mailed Threats
As a result, Superintendent Jim Yancey has banned all backpacks and book bags tomorrow to assist law enforcement in this case. Agencies involved in the investigation include the Marion County Sheriff's Office, Ocala Police Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the U.S. Postmaster, and the FBI. As well, extra eyes and ears will be on every school campus. Crime lab technicians are also examining the written threats for any evidence that might lead detectives to the person responsible.
This evening, the school district will send an automated telephone message to all parents and school employees regarding these decisions.
Anyone with information on the written threats should call Crime Stoppers of Marion County at 368-STOP (368-7867). They can remain anonymous and may receive a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible.
