STROUDSBURG, Pa. -- Another threat has been made to the Monroe County Courthouse.

Investigators have not said if it was a man or woman who made the call but did say it came in around 9 a.m.

Authorities say Monday's threat was called in just after 3 p.m. It was a woman on the other end and the call was traced back to the Mount Pocono area.

Closing off this section of Stroudsburg was difficult on Tuesday because there is a polling location at the county administration building right next door.

County officials checked this area but did not have to close the building and voters were allowed in

Some people we spoke to say it was a little unnerving walking past all the police tape and cruisers.

"This is unfortunate but what is happening is that it's disrupting our polling, our elections. It's disrupting the courthouse and it's really unfair and whoever is doing it needs to stop," said Erica McCabe of Stroudsburg.

No threat was found in the Monroe County Courthouse and it reopened just after 11 a.m.

The courthouse was closed Monday and last Friday due to a threat.

This is the now the 10th threat made against the courthouse.
