McDowell County deputies said a man accused of making threats to the Department of Social Services has been arrested.

Detectives issued a warrant for 47-year-old Jeffrey Pettit, of Marion, for communicating threats on Wednesday morning, according to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office asked the public for help locating him, and he was arrested at his home a short time later.

"DSS administrators and staff did an excellent job handling this situation," said Chief Deputy Ricky Buchanan. "They notified authorities right away and took measures to ensure the safety of everyone in the building."
