TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Authorities are investigating after bomb threats were made to four locations in Tucson on Tuesday.

Dan Lucas, a spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said two of the threats were made to the Pima County Attorney's Office, 32 N. Stone Avenue, and a federal office building, 300 W. Congress St.

The other two threats were made to the El Rio Community Health Center, 839 W. Congress St., and the El Rio Learning Center, 1390 W. Speedway.

Lucas said a man called in the threats, but no arrest has been made yet.

The threats prompted several evacuations, but no roads were closed.

The TPD bomb squad is on the scene and the investigation could take several hours.

Nothing has been found yet.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office in Phoenix was also evacuated briefly on Tuesday because of a bomb threat.

The threat was called in to the consumer complaints hotline, according to a tweet from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
