Thurman Lee Caires Jr., 36, was arrested about 8:41 a.m. today on one count of making terroristic threats in the second degree, a class “C” felony, according to police. He is being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

JPD received a complaint that a man “made statements about having a gun and people owing him money,” a JPD statement read. Police responded and arrested Cairnes, but said no weapon was found and alcohol did not appear to be a factor.
