Bradley County officials are organizing shelter in place drills at local schools as part of a plan to improve responses to emergency situations.

This after last month’s explosion that sent a vapor cloud in the air at Wacker Chemie in Charleston.

Walker Valley High School, Bradley County Schools and Charleston Elementary will be part of the training and education, said Bradley County Emergency Management Director Troy Spence.

He says there were a lot of rumors and wrong information that was spread during the Wacker explosion.

He is working to get more people to sign up for emergency text alerts. He says 35,000 people have signed up so far. You can do so by texting “CBCEMA” to 888 777. If you live within a one mile radius of the chemical plants in Charleston, text “Charleston” to 888 777. If you have a home phone, you can call 423-728-7289 to sign up for voice notifications.

A reward is being offered for information into threats scrawled on two doors at a local apartment complex. The incident occurred at 3005 Henderson Ave., at the residence of Sharee M. Jenkins and Marcus Jarrett late Monday evening.

Cleveland Police officer  Matt Formont responded to the scene in a case he classified as “harassment.” He said that he was met at the door Monday evening just before midnight by  Jenkins, who said that someone had written “threatening messages on her doors,” while Jarrett was away at work.

Jenkins said that she and her husband,  Jarrett, “keep to” themselves and “have not upset anyone” to their knowledge. She added that three small children also reside at the apartment.

She said the words were not on the doors when Jarrett went to work, and that she was notified of the threats by a neighbor at 9:45 p.m. Monday.

The latest CPD reports indicated the incident occurred between 8:20 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday.

Anyone with information on this crime and/or the suspect or suspects involved, is urged to leave a confidential tip via CPD Facebook inbox, or may contact Detective Andy Wattenbarger at 423-476-1121.

A reward will be given for the apprehension of anyone involved. The amount of the reward was not available on the police report.

Police placed heavy extra patrol on the site of the incident, estimated at $100 in damage, and investigation into the incident is continuing.
