Nothing Found After Bomb Threat At Rutherford Co. Judicial Building

CREATED Mar 31, 2014

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Authorities said nothing was found during a search of the Rutherford County Judicial Building in Murfreesboro after a bomb threat on Monday morning.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Department said a bomb threat was called in sometime before 9 a.m. about the building located at 20 N. Public Square. Officials said the caller was a man, but the call was not directed at anyone in particular.

The building, which houses General Sessions Court, was evacuated while the threat was investigated. 

Tennessee Highway Patrol's dogs searched the five-floor building but did not find a bomb.

"We take all the bomb threats as credible threats until we prove otherwise," Sheriff Robert Arnold said.

Everyone was allowed back in just before 11 a.m.
