The state office building in Bel Air that houses Harford County District Court was evacuated Tuesday morning in response to a bomb threat.
No device or immediate danger was found in the Mary Risteau Multi-Service Center at 2 S. Bond Street, however.
The threat was called in around 8:30 a.m. and courthouse staff decided to evacuate the building, Bel Air Police Chief Leo Matrangola said. Bel Air officers assisted in the evacuation.
A canine unit from the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office searched the building and found nothing out of the ordinary, Matrangola said.
The search was completed around 9:40 a.m. and people were then allowed to return to the building, Matrangola said.
