  • The Delaware Capitol Police are continuing to investigate a bomb threat called in at the New Castle County Courthouse shortly after noon Tuesday.
    After receiving the bomb threat by phone at 12:14 p.m., Capitol Police fully evacuated the building, Delaware Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Kimberly Chandler said. Capitol Police then utilized several explosive detection canines from multiple police agencies to search the parking garage and each floor of the building.
    The search was completed at 2:40 p.m., Chandler said. No explosives were found and employees were allowed to reenter the building.
