Terroristic threat results in lockdown at Columbia DSS
Office at Department of Social Services, 703 Jamestown Street on lockdown for approximately two hours after an individual would "pick off employees one by one as the left the building." Suspect arrested, lodged in Adair County Regional Jail, faces multiple charges.
Note: Charges/allegations are not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by law enforcement is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.

Columbia Police Department, Chief Jason Cross
An Adair County man was arrested on multiple charges after an incident that resulted in a state agency building and staff being put on lockdown.
On Thursday, October 5, 2017, at approximately 12:36pmCT, Columbia Police received credible information that a threat had been made by an individual to come onto the property of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services which houses the Family Support and Protection and Permanency. The threat went on to state that the individual was going to wait and " Pick off the employees one by one as they left the building."
Columbia Police sent on duty officers to the building as well as deputies from the Adair County Sheriffs Office and off-duty officers who were called in to secure the building and staff.
At around 1:30pmCT, CPD Sgt Gary Roy and Sgt JR Murphy located the individual and took him into custody where he was transported to Columbia Police Department.
At 3pmCT Sgt Gary Roy secured a Warrant for the arrest of Danny Jeffries, 56, of Columbia, KY, and placed him under arrest.
He was lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail . Charges include
Terroristic Threatening 3rd degree and Retaliating Against a Participant in a Legal Process.
The case remains under investigations by Sgt. Gary Roy
