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.

none of your business    

'celebrity gossip' MORE LIKE CELEBRITY BULLCRAP. Can y'all actually find a DECENT article and stop writing bull? Y'all have pathetic lives making up lies about people who are billions more successful than you will ever be. You know, why don't you write an article about Justin's charity work OR IS THAT TOO HARD FOR YOU. Get yourselves together and write the god damn TRUTH for once. Enjoy your poor little lives trapped behind a screen updating your stories of lies everyday hahahahahahahahah.
