Cherokee Courthouse Reopens After Threat

A courthouse complex in Canton will reopen after it was evacuated for bomb threats.

Officials plan to reopen the Cherokee County Justice Center on Wednesday after it was shut down while police investigated threats received Tuesday.

Sheriff's Office Lt. Jay Baker said a man called a 911 center late Tuesday morning and reported the courthouse would be bombed. The courthouse was evacuated as a precaution.

While authorities were searching the grounds, they received a second threat. Investigators did not find any bombs.
