ELKO — The entire Elko County Courthouse complex was evacuated Monday morning due to a bomb threat.
The courthouse and surrounding buildings will be closed until 1 p.m. Monday.
Two spray-painted images of bombs from the World War II era were found on the concrete at the courthouse at 7:30 a.m. One was placed in the front of the building and one in the back. Both were spray painted in black with the word "Freedom."
The police K-9 unit and its handler are currently searching the building.
Court Street is closed from Fifth Street to George R.E. Boucher Drive.
Our crime reporter, Wheeler Cowperthwaite, is on the scene and will provide more information as it develops.
