Bomb threat leads to search of two buildings


Paris – A sweep of potential bombs at both the Lamar County Courthouse and Paris Municipal buildings Tuesday found nothing suspicious.

Authorities were alerted of the threat following a 9-1-1 call to the Paris Police Department and Lamar County Sheriff's office.

A phone outside a Valero gas station on Loop 286 was being dusted for prints after the calls were made to 9-1-1.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is continuing.
