Yamhill County buildings reopen after bomb threat
Nov 19, 2012 | 5 Comments
The Yamhill County Clerk's Office, courthouse and other buildings have reopened following a 30-minute evacuation due to a bomb threat.
Sources say a caller, apparently male, phoned the clerk's office about 2:50 p.m. Monday saying there was a bomb in a county building. The caller said the threat was not a hoax.
Sergeant Brian Young said all county buildings were checked and nothing suspicious was found.
Yamhill was one of about 18 locations that received bomb threat calls Monday afternoon. All the calls were apparent hoaxes, according to Oregon State Police.
Last week, six Washington state counties received similar calls during the middle of the afternoon. No bombs were found.
