Palm Beach County Courthouse cleared after bomb threat

Teams sweeping the Palm Beach County Courthouse have found no evidence of a bomb and have left the building as of 10: 30 a.m., authorities report.

A floor-by-floor search began when someone called in the threat, said Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. The only thing the caller said was there's a bomb in the courthouse downtown.

Barbera said the caller provided no additional information. The courthouse remained open for business as the sheriff's office bomb squad worked.
