OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the state Capitol was evacuated after a woman called police with a bomb threat directed at Gov. Mary Fallin.

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says the governor - who was in the building - was taken to an undisclosed location and is safe.

Trooper Betsy Randolph says a woman called Oklahoma City police about 10:25 a.m. Friday and said multiple bombs would go off at the governor's mansion and other locations. Randolph says Fallin was immediately notified and ordered the evacuation of the Capitol as a precaution.

Randolph says a sweep of the governor's mansion and the Capitol determined both buildings are secure, and workers were allowed to return to the building about 11:30. Randolph says a female suspect has been arrested by Oklahoma City police.
