Suspect Arrested in Waukesha Courthouse Bomb Threat

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office says a suspect has been arrested for allegedly causing an evacuation of the courthouse by phoning in two bomb threats. 

The suspect’s name hasn’t been released.  The first call came shortly before 9:00 AM Monday. 

Sheriff Eric Severson says he made the decision to evacuate the courthouse, the administration building and the juvenile court building. 

The second call came in about 10 minutes later.  The building was searched and nothing was found – but courthouse workers were dismissed for the day.
