Woman Arrested For Terroristic Threats About Pumpkin Show< < Back to
An Ohio woman was arrested after authorities say she made threats involving a municipal court judge and an annual pumpkin festival.
Patricia Gisvold, of Logan Elm Village, faces one count of petty theft and one count of making a terroristic threat.
Gisvold, 36, was arrested on Wednesday and is being held on $50,000 bond in the Pickaway County Jail.
Circleville Police Chief Wayne Gray told the newspaper on Monday that Gisvold used a stolen cell phone to threaten Circleville Municipal Court Judge Gary Dumm.
Gray says the threatening messages to Dumm also indicated a plan to launch a terrorist-type attack at the Circleville Pumpkin Show.
It was not immediately clear whether Gisvold had an attorney.
A message was left with Gray.
