U.S. Department of Agriculture closes six offices due to threat

The U.S. Department of Agriculture closed six offices across the country Tuesday after a number of anonymous threats, according to multiple sources.

The offices in Fort Collins, Colo., Hamden, Conn., Beltsville, Md., Raleigh, N.C., Kerneysville, W.V., and Leetown, W.V., are closed until further notice.

The Matthew Herrick, USDA spokesman, said the department and law enforcement are working together to determine the credibility. According to The Denver Post, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is one of the departments looking into the threats.
