LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A 58-year-old Lufkin woman was arrested on a terroristic threat charge after she allegedly got upset about the possibility her husband would be transferred from the Alto post office and made a death threat to his boss Wednesday.

Myran Kay Fudge is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a Class A misdemeanor terroristic threat against a public servant charge. No bail amount has been set at this time.

According to Alto Police chief Jeremy Jackson, an investigation was launched Wednesday after a complaint was filed by a United States Postal Service supervisor. The supervisor stated that Fudge made a death threat against him.

Jackson said Fudge's husband works for the post office and there was a chance he could have been transferred, which would mean a loss of hours. Fudge became upset and called her husband's supervisor which was working yesterday in the Alto post office, Jackson said. A death threat was allegedly made. Jackson would not elaborate on what was said.

A USPS investigator was notified and an investigation by the Alto Police Department, USPS and the Lufkin Police Department started. LPD arrested Fudge at her Lufkin home.
