Puppet Master Jeff Dunham

Cops Crack

Legendary ventriloquist Jeff Dunham can sleep soundly again ... because we've learned cops have neutralized the person who made multiple death threats targeting him.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, L.A. police recently executed a warrant to search Twitter records for the identity of a user who threatened the lives of Jeff and his family.

Among the tweets ...

-- "Wanna go scare some kids?? Maybe kill 'em too? I'ts all yers buddy [sic]."

-- "YOUR NEXT ON MY LEEST ... Guess who's outsideeeee"

-- "You have approximately 4 months b4 death ... CHOOSE what you WILL do b4 you DIEEEEE...."

-- Then to Jeff's wife ... "Your husbands name was spoken ... 4 months is his limit ... of DEATH ... I WILL DRAG HIM INTO MY CAPTURE ...."

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, cops tracked the creep down and they're confident he's no longer a threat.  Our sources wouldn't be more specific.

If they wanted to kill Jeff's family he would still be ok because he could just go to the mall and buy a new puppet. He is lucky his family is easily replaceable.

men who play with puppets are sick..google largo puppet master. this florida man was a church member and said "I imagine him wiggling and then going still," Brown told an associate in an Internet chat session, describing his plot to kill and cannibalize a boy at Gulf Coast Church, according to the criminal complaint.

On Friday, Brown was arrested on charges of conspiring to kidnap a child and possession of child pornography and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents who searched his home found lewd images of children bound and gagged, a flier for a missing child and "images of children that appear to be deceased."

Sounds like somebody trying to talk like Achmed, actually. But yeah, sending the wife a tweet is weird and kinda creepy.
