BOISE -- A bomb threat at the Ada County Courthouse this morning appears to have been a false alarm.

Ada County dispatch says a call came into the courthouse just before 9 a.m.

Workers inside the courthouse were not evacuated, but no one was let inside the building while authorities investigated.

A clerk told us that court activities were temporarily postponed, but have resumed now that the threat is over.

A marshal was going from office to office asking staff members if they had received any unusual deliveries.

There have been instances of bomb scares at courthouses in the past where a defendant did not want to show up for court. It is unclear if this is one of those situations.

We have calls out to the Ada County Sheriff's Office and court officials, but have received no official word from them.

Around 10:20 a.m., the all clear was given and people were being let back in the building.

If you have a court date today, it might be a good idea to check with the court to see if they are back on schedule or experiencing any delays because of the bomb scare.
