Deputies investigated a suspicious truck near Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday.

According to the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office, the box truck was parked at the Crossroads Market convenience store in Walter Hill, Tennessee and people called law enforcement at around 10:30 a.m. to report that it was playing an audio recording warning people to evacuate the area, similar to the audio recording that played prior to the Nashville bombing on Christmas day.

According to the Sheriff's office, the truck left the convenience store, traveled from Ruthersford County into Wilson county, and was pulled over by deputies on Murfreesboro Road in Lebanon, Tennessee.

The driver of the truck has been detained and a robot was been deployed to get a closer look at the truck.

Area residents were evacuated as a precaution.

The truck was determined not to be a threat and at around 4:30 p.m. deputies began to clear the scene and remove the truck.
