ARAB, AL (WAFF) -

Federal agents in Marshall County are looking into a possible terrorist threat.

Authorities said it was scribed on a grocery store wall.

Neither police nor the FBI have provided details about what was written, but a store manager said it does revolve around a U.S. marshal.

Foodland manager Darrell Drake said Arab Police were called to the store after the threat was discovered October 1.

Arab Police called the FBI, who is now in charge of the investigation.

Drake said it appeared the threat regarding a U.S. marshal had been on the wall for a period of time.

He said the FBI arrived later in the day Monday and questioned employees into Tuesday.

Drake said the writing on the wall has since been cleaned up.

FBI spokesman Paul Daymond said they take these threats seriously and are continuing their investigation.

Daymond said there is no reason for the people in Arab to be concerned.
