Iredell courthouses evacuated following bomb threat



The Iredell County Courthouse in Statesville was evacuated Thursday morning after a bomb threat was called-in.

Clerk of Court Jim Mixson says the call came-in around 10:30 and was taken by one of his staff members. According to Mixson, the Mooresville courthouse was also evacuated as a precaution.

The main courthouse in Statesville has since re-opened and returned to normal business after being cleared by law enforcement.  Mooresville District Court will resume at 1:00 p.m.

Both the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office and the Statesville Police Department responded Thursday morning.
