The Hardin County Courthouse in Savannah was evacuated after a bomb threat Monday morning, according to WBBJ News 7. The call, which came in around 8:40 a.m., contained a threat to blow up the courthouse if court was held that day. A second call at 10:45 a.m. reiterated the threat with the caller saying, "I swear to God. If there is any court anywhere I will deploy the bomb." The courthouse was later cleared and court resumed at 1 p.m. Deputies said nothing was found on the scene but officials are working to trace the call.
