Bomb threats close Niagara County office buildings

Two court buildings and a county office building in Niagara County were closed in the early afternoon Thursday because of phoned-in bomb threats.

The Niagara County Courthouse in Lockport and the Niagara Falls City Court building were evacuated and searched, as was the Niagara County Economic Development Center in the town of Wheatfield.

Officials say no explosive device or elements were found. Law enforcement continue to investigate.
