A man has been arrested in connection with the threats made towards students at two Decatur schools.

Thursday, Durfee Technology Magnet School and MacArthur High were put on a soft lockdown due to an investigation by the Macon County Sheriff's Department.

According to a sworn statement, Anthony Reider claims Ricardo Holloway, 29, threatened to kill him if he did not pay Ricardo $460 for cocaine. When Anthony refused to pay, Ricardo said he would kill Anthony's 11-year-old child who was attending Durfee school.

Police were told that Ricardo also threatened to kill Anthony's 17-year-old daughter who was attending MacArthur High School. Ricardo even allegedly texted Anthony his son's name writing, "I'm not playing Tony" and a picture of Durfee School's playground, then texted "keep on playing watch how bad it get".

Durfee School and MacArthur High School were both placed on lockdown.

Ricardo admitted to calling and texting threats to Anthony over the money, but denied threatening to kill him or his children at the school.
