Sheriff’s Office Employee Leaked Threats

An east Arkansas sheriff’s department employee has been suspended after reportedly leaking law enforcement intelligence about a threat made toward Arkansas schools.

The Lee County Sheriff telling KATV the information disseminated through the Arkansas State Police Fusion Center was posted by one of his employees to Facebook.

That post is now under investigation by the FBI.

The information in the Facebook post discussed threats made online warning of a school shooting in Kentucky for today and Arkansas for tomorrow.

The FBI and state police have maintained that the threat is unspecified and non-credible. But area school districts and law enforcement entities are on high alert.
