A "serious threat" has closed all offices of the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

Spokeswoman Emily Cook confirmed for Seacoast Current a WGME TV report that the threat may have been from an upset customer.

“As our enforcement division works to resolve the threat against branches and out of an abundance of caution, branch offices will only be open for previously-scheduled appointments for the rest of the day,” Secretary of State Shenna Bellows said in a statement.  “Our branch office staff will continue to provide service to those customers until we’re able to reopen fully to the public.”

Cook did not disclose details about the threat.

A threat was made against 10 Maine schools on Nov. 15. No arrests have been made in the case.
