Arrest comes one month after threats

January 3, 2019, The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) arrested Hanna R. Warren 18, Madison, Indiana, on four (4) counts of level 6 felony intimidation. The arrest stems from the December 3, 2018, e-mail threats made to the Madison Consolidated High School.  One count is for the threat made against the high school in general, and the other three are for individual threats made against MCHS faculty members. 


The arrest comes after a month long investigation led by SRO / Special Deputy Jacob McVey, and SRO / Special Deputy Tim Armstrong.  Jefferson County Sheriff’s Detective Yancy Denning and agents from the F.B.I. assisted the school resource officers with the investigation. 


The December 3, 2019, threats caused the school to be placed under “locked out” status.  A significant amount of law enforcement hours were expended at the school and during this expansive investigation.  All threats, especially those made against our schools, will be dealt with in the most serious of manners and all resources will be utilized.  Warren is currently incarcerated at the Jefferson County Jail, where she awaits her initial court appearance on the preliminary alleged felony intimidation charges.  Hanna Warren is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
