Police investigating bomb threat at Hampton courthouses


HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Hampton police are investigating another bomb threat at the city’s courthouses.

All three courthouses and surrounding streets were closed Tuesday as a precaution, and later reopened. Nothing was found after a search, police said.

No other details are available at this time, but it comes about two weeks after police arrested a Newport News man accused of multiple bomb threats in Hampton this year.

A police department spokesman said sheriff’s office data shows there have been a total of 19 bomb threats since 2017.
