A Citra woman was arrested Tuesday night after being accused of sending threatening text messages.
Marion County sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence on N.E. 44th Avenue, where the victim showed them the messages he said he had received from 39-year-old Sarah Lou Taylor. The messages mentioned “putting a bullet between your eyes.” The messages also told the victim he would be able to laugh when he was dead and said, “I never (expletive deleted) around you deserve it,” according to a sheriff’s office report.
The victim provided deputies with Taylor’s phone number and they discovered that she had been arrested for criminal mischief after the victims’ vehicle was damaged on the same day the text messages were sent, the report says.
Deputies made contact with Taylor at her residence on N.E. 166th Place. After being read her rights, she admitted to sending the threatening text messages to the victim but said she deleted them. Deputies confirmed her phone number and a photo of her that was linked to the messages as well, the report says.
Taylor was taken into custody and transported to the Marion County Jail, where she was charged with intimidation/writing or sending a threat to kill or injure. She was released late Wednesday night on $2,000 bond and is due in court Dec. 1 at 9 a.m. to answer to the charge, jail records show.
