On January 10, 2014 at approximately 1:55 p.m. Metro 911 received a call from Freedom Industries. An employee reported a threat to the business’ employees. A male called Freedom Industries and said he was on his way to teach everyone there a lesson.
The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office dispatched several Deputy Sheriffs to the scene as a precaution. As of the writing of this release (January 10, 2014 at 3:30 p.m.) no one has arrived to fulfill the threat.
At this time the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office will keep resources there to make certain investigators from other agencies are able to safely complete their jobs, and insure the safety of the employees of Freedom Industries.
