The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit responded to the courthouse today after a bomb threat had been called into the Cobb County 911 center.
A spokesperson for the sheriff's office said the Frank C. Mills Justice Center was not evacuated, and a K-9 search revealed nothing unusual.
A foreclosure sale on the steps of the Justice Center, however, was briefly disrupted as deputies set up a perimeter around the building.
Lt. Jay Baker said the caller told 911 operators that bombs had been buried outside the Cobb and Cherokee courthouses.
K-9s were called in, and a search was conducted outside the building. Baker said normal operations resumed after the search was conducted.
The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the incident.
