A woman at a Bumblebees, a downtown Santa Fe restaurant, overheard a man on a cell phone say he was going to “waste” somebody at the nearby courthouse.

The woman called Santa Fe police, who called the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department as a precaution as they provide courthouse security. The Sheriff’s Office decided to put the courthouse on lockdown as a precaution, but that lockdown was lifted at 10:20 a.m. with no suspect found.

This is what was sent out about the phone call Santa Fe Police received:

Citizen reported overhearing a cell phone conversation of male threatening to “waste” somebody. Specific person targeted is not known. Sheriff Dept was notified. Officers are searching the immediate area of District Court. Male suspect is identified to be wearing a blue baseball cap, white jacket, tan shorts and long white socks. Call police if you see him.

Certainly nothing very specific about the threat, but that is what was happening in downtown Santa Fe this morning for any interested. I will update here if anything more comes of this.
