NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say three courthouses in Oklahoma that were evacuated due to threats have reopened to employees and the public.

The Grady County Courthouse in Chickasha; the Cleveland County Courthouse in Norman; and the Creek County Courthouse in Sapulpa were each evacuated Wednesday morning.

Authorities say each courthouse was reopened before noon Wednesday.

Creek County Sheriff John Davis told reporters that there is no indication the threats are related.

Officials described the threats in Grady and Creek counties as bomb threats, while a spokeswoman for the Cleveland County sheriff described the incident as “a potential threat.”
