Reported Threats to DCS Ends with Arrest of a Local Woman

  Email   Print

A woman in Rutherford County allegedly made a threat to someone about "Blowing up DCS." The threat came shortly after children were removed from the custody of the 37 year old suspect.

The threat was reported to have been made in the presence of an Eagleville man, according to a police report. The same man told police that she had stolen a .22 caliber revolver and 30 rounds of ammo.

Despite the alleged threat and the possible theft of a gun, the woman did show up to visit with a DCS worker at the DCS office as she was originally scheduled after the kids were removed. The report that WGNS obtained showed that she was "Hostile and could not complete her urine test."

After the woman left the office a phone call was reportedly made to the female by DCS asking her to return for the urine test. Police evidently had a chance to listen in on that conversation and reported she once again made a threat towards a DCS worker. A Murfreesboro Police Officer wrote after hearing the conversation with DCS, "She was going to take her out and make you pay for taking her kids."

Two hours after the call was made police learned that another woman who knows the suspect called and advised the the suspect was headed to DCS with a gun. The Department of Children Services Office was quickly shut down.

Since the information was gathered, the suspect has been arrested and identified as 37 year old Kristy Nickens. She is currently behind bars at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center in Murfreesboro. Her bond has been set at $20,000 and she was charged with "Retaliation for Past Action, Felony."
