According to the Eufaula Indian Journal's Facebook page, there were reports of a bomb threat at the McIntosh County Courthouse that has now been given the all-clear.

The post says the Courthouse has been evacuated and says the caller said there was a bomb in the courthouse. The caller also said they had two hours to find it before it exploded, the post says.

The post says the lawmen blocked off all the streets that were surrounding the courthouse while waiting for the OHP Bomb Squad and a bomb-sniffing dog to arrive from Muskogee.

The post says the temporary courthouse that was being used was The National Guard Armory.

Eufaula Indian Journal updated their Facebook stating that the OHP Bomb Squad and bomb-sniffing dog did give an all-clear from the courthouse.
