A terroristic threats complaint led to Morgan County officials using both the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Team and the Gwinnett Police Department SWAT team to arrest a man charged with threatening a Morgan County woman and law enforcement officials.
Alan Bryce Tybor, 45, was arrested two hours after more than 12 police officers surrounded his Liliburn residence. Initially, according to Sgt. Brandon Sellers, Investigations Division, Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, Tybor displayed an assault rifle through a window at officers and refused to come out of the house.
Officers arrived at approximately 7:30 on Tuesday, July 30 and Tybor was taken into custody at approximately 9:30 p.m. and transported to the Gwinnett County Detention Center awaiting possible assault charges in Gwinnett. “After some negotiation he exited the house on his own accord,” Sellers said.
Morgan County has issued a hold request on Tybor, Sellers said.
According to Morgan County Sheriff’s reports, a warrant was issued against Tybor on July 29 after he allegedly transmitted threatening text messages to his former girlfriend and the mother of his two children at her residence on East Dixie Avenue in Rutledge.
Reports state that Tybor sent the woman a picture of him holding an AR15 rifle and a text that said, “This is not a negotiation. I’m showing up with my AR15 and about 300 rounds of ammunition and a bunch of gasoline. Cops show up and they’re all dead and you cause trouble you’re dead and yes this is threat you wanna call the police go ahead theres going to be 20 or 30 dead offices as I’m (expletive) loaded for bear they better have a (expletive) swat team out there.”
Reports state that Tybor had allegedly threatened to burn the woman’s house down in previous threats.
“He made some specific threats to her… and fairly specific threats to law enforcement in general,” Sellers said.
He said officials moved quickly, in part, to protect the woman and law enforcement officers who may have come in contact with Tybor.
