Alachua County, FL: Bomb Threat to Courthouses

Several city and county buildings were searched for explosives Thursday afternoon after an anonymous bomb threat.

All that was said was there was a bomb in the courthouse and to get the fuck out. Because the caller did not specify which courthouse, both the criminal courthouse on South Main Street and the civil courthouse on East University Avenue were searched

omb threats are not unusual, and the county has received between 10 and 15 bomb threats this year. Still, every instance has to be handled and checked out, which drains resources.
