The incident happened at the BB&T bank on Capital Boulevard and Calvary Drive. The bank received an anonymous phone call around 2:45 p.m. Monday, telling bank employees to put money in a bag outside or the bank would be blown up.

People who were in the bank were evacuated as a precaution. A SWAT team and bomb squad were called in to assess the situation.

After 90 minutes, authorities say they did not find any evidence of an explosive device. Authorities are now trying to figure out who made the phone call.
