A 24-year old Rome woman was jailed Monday on multiple charges including four counts of terroristic threats and acts.

According to Floyd County Jail records, Sierra Nicole Lofton threatened to shoot and stab three juveniles who were playing basketball in the parking lot of her Dodd Boulevard apartment.

When officers arrived, Lofton reportedly tried to walk away, then started yelling and causing a disturbance.

On the way to jail, Lofton allegedly threatened to kill the officer.

Once at the jail, a baggie containing methamphetamine was located on the floor next to the chair where Lofton was sitting.

Lofton was also charged with possession of drugs across the guard line at the jail, possession of meth, obstruction of officers and disorderly conduct.
