An Woodville man was ar­rested Wed­nes­day af­ter threat­en­ing to “shoot up” his own child’s school.

Deputies from the Tu­lare County Sher­iff’s Of­fice were called to Woodville El­e­men­tary School Wed­nes­day re­gard­ing threats made by an adult par­ent, and de­tec­tives later dis­cov­ered the threat had been made within the past month, but still be­lieved it to be cred­i­ble.

Based on that in­for­ma­tion, staff mem­bers im­me­di­ately locked down the school. Sub­se­quently, De­tec­tives from the Sher­iff’s Prop­erty Crimes Unit re­sponded to the scene and took over the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the sus­pect was iden­ti­fied as Casey Crisler, a 37-year-old res­i­dent of Woodville. He was con­tacted in Porter­ville af­ter agree­ing to meet with de­tec­tives and was ar­rested with­out in­ci­dent.

The sus­pect was later booked into cus­tody at the Porter­ville Sher­iff’s Sub­sta­tion. The Tu­lare County Sher­iff’s Of­fice has a zero tol­er­ance for any threats of vi­o­lence against schools.

Any­one with more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ves­ti­ga­tion is urged to con­tact De­tec­tive Scott O’neill or Sgt. Larry Ca­ma­cho with the Tu­lare County Sher­iff’s Of­fice at 1-800-808-0488 or anony­mously at tcso@ tip­now.com or by text or voice­mail at #559-7254191.
