SHEILA A. MATHEWS :::

The Wells Fargo located at 1506 Georgia Highway 16 closed early Wednesday following a threat of violence.

According to a law enforcement source, a man described as the former significant other of a female Wells Fargo employee phoned in the threat, stating he intended to shoot up the bank.

According to one customer who was inside the business when the threat was received, Wells Fargo management cleared customers from inside the bank while allowing drive-thru business to continue.

An officer of the Griffin Police Department was dispatched to the bank in response to the threat and was seen inside speaking with management.

As of the official close of business hours, the threat had not been acted upon.
