Arrest made in copycat threat

BEVERLY — A woman’s threat to bomb Beverly Hospital has allegedly moved a Gloucester man to do the same thing.

In what police describe as a “copycat” crime, Mark S. Fuller, 61, is accused in two counts of making a bomb threat.

Police say Fuller saw Saturday’s Salem News story about Ashley Galvin, 20, of 15 Broadway, Beverly, who was taken into custody Thursday after threatening specific police officers, their cruisers and, finally, Beverly Hospital. She is said to have cited “perceived unjust treatment” and threatened to blow up public buildings.

Likewise, police said, Fuller called the hospital claiming that he suffered bad treatment in the past. He also endorsed Glavin’s threat to the point of threatening to bomb the hospital himself.

Galvin, who police said sent her threats via email, faces 10 counts of making threats that encompass the Beverly Public Library, as well.

Fuller, who was living at the Cape Ann Motor Inn, according to police, was taken into custody by the Gloucester Police Department.

He is currently being held at Middleton Jail.

Responding to the latest threats were Patrolmen Joshua Pickett and Daniel Skerry, Detective Dana Nickerson, and the Beverly Fire Department.
