A man has been arrested after making threats toward Summit School District teachers and staff.
Charles Draughn is currently being held in the custody of the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office on an active felony warrant out of Summit County, a press release from the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office states.
According to the release, the sheriff’s office was notified Wednesday by the Garfield County Communications Authority of an individual who made a threat to schools in Summit County. The individual was believed to be in Pitkin County, and information obtained from law enforcement sources suggested the individual was armed.
Location data obtained from law enforcement partners indicated the individual was in the Old Snowmass area. The suspect was taken into custody at 10:02 a.m.
An email from Summit School District to parents states that “all school operations will move back to normal,” following the suspect’s arrest.
