A bomb threat prompted authorities to evacuate a building in the 500 block of North Tryon Street Tuesday in uptown Charlotte.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said they got a call at 9:26 a.m. that a threat had been called into 525 N. Tryon, formerly Odell Plaza.
All 1,200 people working in the building were evacuated as a precaution, with employees sent to the corner of North Tryon and 9th streets. Grubb Properties, which manages the building, says there are seven tenants in the building.
“After a thorough search of the building by a CMPD bomb dog, CFD, G4S and Central Division Officers, no suspicious devices were found,” said a statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police.
