DUMB: Sex Offender Takes To Craiglist’s “Rants & Raves” Section And Threatens To Shoot A Cop; Is Arrested


Officials in Jackson County arrest a convicted sex offender accused of threatening on Craigslist to shoot and kill a police officer. 39-year-old Derrick Lenart is charged with communicating threats. Investigators say the post was made Thursday night under the “rants” section of Craigslist for the Asheville area. It didn’t specify an individual officer or where the shooting would happen, but indicted people should tune in to WLOS, and that the shooting would happen before 10:00 Friday night. The SBI helped deputies track down Lenart in his apartment across from Western Carolina University. He was arrested without incident.
