Terresha Lucas Wiki – Terresha Lucas Biography
Terresha Lucas is a black woman who was arrested in Georgia after allegedly posing as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and placing racially charged messages in her neighbors’ mailboxes, threatening to burn down their homes and kill them, according to law enforcement.
Lucas of the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville was charged with eight counts of making terroristic threats after leaving violent, hateful notes. She claimed to be a white member of the hate group, with a long red beard who did not live in the neighborhood, the Douglasville Police Department said.
She is 30 years old.
On December 21, 2020, two homes on the same street in the Brookmont subdivision received notes in their mailboxes that were racially motivated.
“The letter is using the N-word, talking about the KKK, hanging people, killing kids, killing whole families, and setting houses on fire,” a concerned father who received a letter told local news.
“The notes threatened to burn their houses down and kill them and said that they didn’t belong in the neighborhood,” DPD detective Nathan Shumaker confirmed in a statement last week.
Police said that similar notes — all left in the middle of the night — were found in the residents’ mailboxes on February 17, February 22, March 1, and March 3.
At least seven black residents reported receiving such notes, but police believe there were likely more.

Detectives went door to door in the neighborhood, checking doorbells and security cameras after reporting the first notes. They walked around the neighborhood distributing flyers seeking any information, police said, but received no leads.
“By mid-March, we didn’t have anything to go on,” Shumaker said.
After a sixth-month hiatus, the final note was placed on September 6, police said.
The case broke when evidence was found linking the notes to Lucas’ house. According to Shumaker, police obtained a warrant and searched her home, which yielded evidence tying the suspect to the incidents.
Lucas remains in custody at the Douglas County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had retained an attorney who could speak on her behalf.
Douglasville is about 20 miles west of Atlanta.
