GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A Social Security Administration office is expected to reopen a day after it was closed as a precaution following a bomb threat.

The Greenville News reported (https://grnol.co/2ad0r4z ) Homeland Security officers were posted outside the city’s Social Security office building Wednesday and informed visitors it was closed. Social Security spokeswoman Patti Patterson said the office closed out of an “abundance of caution,” but was expected to reopen Thursday.

Greenville police arrested 69-year-old Ronnie Vaughn with making unlawful 911 emergency calls and making a bomb threat. Police spokesman Gilberto Franco says Vaughn was arrested at his home without incident.

Arrest warrants say Vaughn called emergency dispatchers seven times on Tuesday and threatened to blow up two churches, a synagogue and the Social Security office.
