THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  The most recent bomb threat at the Thomas County Courthouse was Monday morning. Just after 9:00 a.m., while state court was going on,  someone called the clerk's office and said there was a bomb in the building. Deputies evacuated and searched the building and found nothing.

Two weeks ago, on June 16th, the same thing happened twice in one day.  Investigators still haven't identified that caller.   Investigator Bob Brettel with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office said, "In both these situations, it's a little bit different. Don't want to go into exactly how different it is now but it is a different method that they're coming in so that poses a little extra work but we'll find out where it came from."

Investigators don't know if the incidents are related.  Either way the callers will face felony charges of making terroristic threats.
