October 17, 2022 – Ventura County, Ca – As if those dedicated to education of the younger generation in the nation’s public school systems don’t have enough to worry about now that schools are back in session following a year of Covid-related dramatics, there appear to be some individuals who lack any level of appreciation for the efforts of teachers and school administrators.

Evidence of that came on October 14th when, according to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sr. Deputy Gunnar Dike, “during the course of business” on that date, the Superintendent of Thousand Oaks’ Conejo Valley Unified School District “began receiving threatening voicemails.” Perhaps in consideration of the recent spate of violence taking place on school campuses throughout the nation, the law enforcement response to this report was immediate, with detectives attached to the Thousand Oaks Police Department promptly opening an investigation into the source of the threatening telephonic communications.

Within 24 hours, the TOPD’s Intelligence Led Policing and Investigations Unit identified the source of the threatening calls as a phone located in Santa Barbara County and registered to 45-year-old Goleta, Ca. resident Randell Graham. As law enforcement agencies throughout the tri-counties area “take threats directed at students, schools, and staff very seriously,” contact with Graham was made at his residence within hours of his identification.

Graham was taken into custody and transported to Ventura County Jail, where he was booked on a charge of making criminal threats, with his bail amount unspecified.
