Beverly police arrest woman who threatened to kill officers, blow up buildings

BEVERLY — A tense, two-day investigation that forced lockdowns at Beverly Hospital and the Beverly Public Library ended with the arrest of a woman who had threatened to kill police officers and firefighters and blow up public buildings.

Ashley Galvin, 20, of 15 Broadway in Beverly, was taken into custody yesterday afternoon after police officers confronted her at the library. Galvin admitted to sending threatening emails due to "perceived unjust treatment" from police, fire and hospital workers over the last few months, police said.

Galvin was charged with 10 counts of threats to kill, 10 counts of threats of extortion, and one count each of threatening to bomb a police station, fire station and library. She was arraigned today in Salem District Court and ordered held without bail by Judge Robert Brennan until a hearing next Friday to determine if she is too dangerous to be released.
