NEWS-LEDGER ONLINE — JAN 9, 2012 —
All Yolo County court facilities in Woodland were evacuated after a bomb threat received at the Superior Courthouse at 8:30 a.m. today.
West Sacramento police and CHP officers helped the sheriff’s department and Woodland police look for a bomb. None was found, and the courts were re-opened at 10:30 a.m.
Investigators have “several credible leads” as to the suspect, said a court press release.
A court spokesperson said the last time the courts received a bomb threat was in 2005, and that suspect was arrested and charged for the crime.
As for today:
“Court operations were delayed, but judges and court staff are working hard to ensure that there will be only minimal disruption,” reports the office of Court Executive Officer James B. Perry.
