A Springville man is behind bars and accused of sending threatening emails to the St. Clair County Clerk’s Office and the board of education. Danny Nichols is charged with two counts of Terrorist Threats.
Investigators believe Nichols sent email threats that implied explosive devices would damage Pell City and Ashville Schools along with the St. Clair County courthouse. All buildings were immediately emptied and complete building sweeps were performed by K-9 units and authorities.
The locations were cleared and normal operations were able to resume. He is in the St. Clair County Jail without bond.
