MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Investigators with the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office are  looking into a bomb threat at the Bibb County Courthouse that came in earlier this morning.

According to the head of security at the courthouse, Major Tonnie Williams, the call came in through the e-911 center.

Williams says following protocol, everyone inside the building was evacuated while
the fire department and EOD searched the building top to bottom.

“At 9:24 we receive a call and by 9:40 we have personnel in the building that are starting to sweep the building from the fifth floor working their way down,” he told 41NBC.

Authorities did not find anything during that search of the building.

However, the sheriff’s office is looking over surveillance footage and trying to follow up with the person who made the call.
