City Hall was immediately evacuated and the Lewisburg Police and Fire Departments responded to and secured the scene.\u201d\r\n\r\nGreenbrier County Sheriff Bruce Sloan said, \u201cThe caller made a specific threat to City Hall, but also made separate, generic statements about courthouses in the state.\u201d In an abundance of caution, the Greenbrier County Courthouse was evacuated, as well, and all public employees were sent home for the day. Both locations were closed to the public for the remainder of the business day.\r\n\r\n[caption id="attachment_40827" align="alignright" width="300"]<img class="size-medium wp-image-40827" src="https:\/\/mountainmedianews.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/sites\/13\/2020\/02\/bomb-dog-1-300x225.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="225" \/> Creasy and his handler enter the Greenbrier County Courthouse to scan for bomb activity.[\/caption]\r\n\r\nCity Hall and the Courthouse were then \u201cvisually inspected\u201d by local law enforcement as they awaited the arrival of a bomb-detecting dog from Fayette County. Creasy, a seven-year-old German Shepherd, arrived around 1:30 p.m. with his handler, Senior Trooper S.G. Milam of Fayette County, and cleared both of the buildings. No suspicious activity was detected at either location, and they were both reopened the following day.\r\n\r\nThe press release states, \u201cA subsequent investigation was conducted by the Lewisburg Police Department with Dep. Chief Vance as the lead investigator along with the assistance of the FBI, WV State Police, and the City of Cleveland Ohio Police Department which resulted in the arrest of Michael Joseph Neely Jr. in Cleveland Ohio.\u201d\r\n\r\nNeely was charged in the Greenbrier County Magistrate Court with felony threats of terrorist acts and false reports concerning bombs or other explosive devices. He was incarcerated in Cleveland, Ohio, awaiting extradition back to West Virginia.\r\n\r\nPossible threats to other locations and state officials made by the same suspect are also under investigation.
