WISNER, Neb. (KMTV) — The Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department's Melanie Thompson told KMTV the department's health director received credible threats and the department was evacuated.
The building now has security after the threats from about three weeks ago.
Gov. Pete Ricketts said Tuesday that the individual who allegedly made the threats was caught and is being prosecuted.
"This is again where we ask for that space for grace for everybody just trying to do their job and keep people healthy," Ricketts said.
The Wisner Police Department hasn't responded to a request for comment.
