Bomb Threat at Teller County Courthouse


The Teller County courthouse was evacuated Monday because of a bomb threat.

The Sheriff's office says the threat was received by email Monday morning. It reportedly said there were multiple bombs in the building.

A two block perimeter was set up around the courthouse.

Cripple Creek police, the Teller County Sheriff's Office, State Patrol and the Colorado Springs bomb squad all responded.

Bomb sniffing dogs searched the building, but didn't find anything.

The building remained closed Monday, but is expected to reopen Tuesday.
