Law enforcement officials in Pulaski County are denying rumors that outside protest groups such as Antifa plan to show up in the area this weekend.
Rumors circulated on Facebook this week that either Somerset or the Mill Springs Battlefield in Nancy were going to be visited by Antifa or other groups.
Both the Somerset Police Department and Pulaski County Sheriff’s office said they will be taking safety precautions this weekend, both because the rumors have been spreading and also because of Friday’s Juneteenth event taking place in the Judicial Center Plaza.
Pulaski county Sheriff Greg Speck issued a statement yesterday saying his department knew of no credible threats.
PCSO asked the public to take consideration before passing along unverified information.
