On Wednesday, the Douglasville Police Department identified a black female who has allegedly been sending her neighbors racially-charges notes since December.
Police identified Terresha Lucas, a 30-year-old African-American female, as the suspect behind the notes, charging her with eight counts of making terroristic threats, according to a police statement.
Police said that residents of Manning Drive in Georgia began receiving notes in December from a person claiming to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan. “Lucas allegedly described herself as a six-feet-tall white male with a long, red beard who did not live in the neighborhood,” the police statement said.
According to CBS46, the notes were received by at least seven black people who lived in the neighborhood. The notes reportedly contained the N-word and talked about hanging people and killing kids.
“By mid-March, we really didn’t have anything to go on,” Shumaker said.
Detectives at that point had determined that the letters had similar handwriting, tone and verbiage with some “distinctive letters that were consistent throughout.”
On Labor Day, police received evidence linking the notes to the house of Lucas, with detectives being able to obtain a search warrant. Detectives were able to find other evidence linking the suspect to the incidents when they carried out that warrant.
