CHANDLER, Okla. (AP) - For the second straight day, an Oklahoma county courthouse was evacuated due to a bomb threat.

Authorities in Lincoln County say the courthouse was evacuated Thursday after officials received the threat, which was directed at a judge’s chambers.

The Oklahoma County bomb squad made a sweep of the building before authorities lifted the evacuation order at about 5 p.m.

On Wednesday, three county courthouses in Oklahoma were evacuated due to threats: Grady County Courthouse in Chickasha; the Cleveland County Courthouse in Norman; and the Creek County Courthouse in Sapulpa. Each courthouse was reopened before noon Wednesday.

Officials described the threats in Grady and Creek counties as bomb threats. Cleveland County officials say they received “a potential threat.”
