Andalusia Bomb Threat

ANDALUSIA, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities in south Alabama are investigating a bomb threat involving government buildings.
Andalusia Mayor Earl Johnson told the Associated Press an unidentified man called a Covington County courthouse Thursday morning saying a package full of explosives either had been or would be delivered to an unspecified government building.
Johnson says the city's schools and government buildings were evacuated and a gathering area in downtown Andalusia was closed to the public. Johnson says the middle school had been cleared and the elementary and high school were expected to be cleared by 4 p.m.
WAOO-FM reports authorities stopped a vehicle in connection with the bomb threat. Johnson was aware of the car stop, but could not provide additional details on possible links between the vehicle and the anonymous caller.
