Bomb Threat at Levy County Court House
April 26, 2016
The LCSO 911 Center received a call this morning at 0816
hours. The caller made a vague threat that a bomb was at the Levy County Court
House and could explode. Deputies responded and immediately evacuated court
house administrative services and judicial services staff. LCSO deputies have
conducted an exterior sweep of the court house complex.  
Sheriff McCallum has requested mutual aid from the Alachua
County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad who are responding to complete an interior
search of the building.
Further details will be updated when they become available.

***UPDATE***
LCSO has been given the all clear. K-9 Units from Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and the University of
Florida Police Department searched the interior and exterior of the Levy County
Court House, and no explosive devices were found.
Court house employees and citizens who arrived for
scheduled appointments have been allowed re-entry into the complex and all
services are now back in operation.
LCSO investigators are currently following leads and expect
to have a suspect in custody soon.
