A vague threat was called into the Lincoln County Courthouse at around 9am Thursday. Investigators were not sure which courthouse the caller was referring to. So, both the Old Court House and the Justice Center were evacuated. Officers made sure that area schools and businesses were secure while they performed a search.
Police also used dogs to help them search the area for anything suspicious. They did not find anything during their investigation. Both the County Courthouse and Justice Center have been cleared and are open to the public.
The Lincoln County Courthouse was also evacuated on August 9, 2018. That threat was called into Lincoln County 911 around 2:00pm on a Thursday. It is not clear if the calls are connected.
