MIDDLEBURG -- The Snyder County Courthouse and surrounding roads have reopened after being closed Monday morning for an "emergency situation."

The Snyder County sheriff told Newswatch 16 the courthouse received a phone call that there was a bomb inside the building.

The building was cleared out and Routes 104 and 522 were closed.

The sheriff's department said a bomb-sniffing dog checked out the building and nothing was found. The building reopened just before noon.

No one is in custody at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

    Has there ever been a bombing before in history where a perp calls in the threat before the bomb explodes? I don’t recall any. Probably just a redneck trying to avoid his sentencing date.
