Bomb threat clears Glenwood Springs buildings

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The Garfield County courthouse, sheriff’s department and county administration building in Glenwood Springs have been evacuated because of a bomb threat.

Sheriff Lou Vallerio told radio station KMTS-FM that authorities got a call late Tuesday morning warning that a bomb would go off in the courthouse in the early afternoon. Vallerio says the caller sound like a man and said he was unhappy about something.

It wasn’t clear if the caller was upset about a court case.

A bomb squad and a hazards-response team were going to search the buildings. Vallerio told KMTS that they would wait for the deadline given by the caller, but declined to say what the deadline was.
