Bomb Threat at County Courthouse

The McKean County Courthouse was closed for several hours after a bomb threat was reported early this morning.

District Attorney Ray Learn tells us state police and his office had bomb sniffing dogs searching the building.

The building was cleared at around 10:40 a.m.

Learn says Smethport Police, detectives from the DA’s office and state police are continuing to investigate.

This is the third bomb threat in a little over two weeks in Pennsylvania county courthouses.

The Mercer County Courthouse received a threat on October 28. The Blair County Courthouse received a similar threat on October 25.
