Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said that shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday the County Clerk's Office received the first of three phone calls during which time a male caller stated that there was a bomb in the building.
Two Macomb Sheriff "bomb" dogs were called in to perform a floor-by-floor search of the building. They were assisted by a K-9 from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office and another from the Michigan State Police.
After a thorough search, the building was deemed safe (at 12:35pm). Normal daily operations were restored by 2 p.m.
The Sheriff's Department is investigating.
