An employee with the Jackson County Tax Commissioner’s Office, Athens St., Jefferson, reported terroristic threats and acts to the Jefferson Police Department.

The employee told officers he thought he was shot at while posting property on Lebanon Church Rd. for a tax sale.

The following day a man came by the tax commissioner’s office to figure out what to do to keep from selling the property and he said “the tax commissioner needs to be careful with people who possess a certain skill with heavy machinery. The guy with the dulldozer he was speaking about mowed down the tax commissioner’s office and the employees’ homes.”
