SALINE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Saline County, Illinois man is accused of making terrorist threats.

Tevin J. Tate, 22, of Carrier Mills, was charged with misdemeanor possession of cannabis and falsely making a terrorist threat.

According to the Saline County Sheriff's Office, the Johnson County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call around 7:36 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 21.

They say the caller reported a bomb threat to both the Saline and White County courthouses.

Saline County Sheriff Keith Brown said the Saline County Courthouse was evacuated of a few employees because the threat was received before the normal public hours of operation.

Sheriff Brown said a search of the courthouse was done and no device was found. The courthouse was reopened to the public at 9:30 a.m.

He said an alleged suspect, Tate, was identified and is being held in the Saline County Detention Center.

Sheriff Brown said the case is still under investigation and more charges are pending.

The Saline County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Harrisburg Police Department, Illinois State Police, Harrisburg Fire Department, Carrier Mills Police Department, Secretary of State Bomb Squad and the FBI.
