The Murfreesboro juvenile detention center, clerk's office and courthouse were evacuated Tuesday morning after a bomb threat.

Twenty-two people were evacuated to a nearby workshop as the sheriff's office and K-9s searched the buildings.

Police said someone called the juvenile court clerk's office around 8:30 a.m. with the bomb threat.

After the buildings were searched, nothing suspicious was found.   Workers were allowed to return to the buildings by 11 a.m.

The clerk's office said scheduled court proceedings will continue Tuesday, although hearings may be delayed.

No one has been arrested for the threat.
