(KSL News) – Some tense moments in Tooele as a bomb threat forces the evacuation of the Tooele County Courthouse and Jail.

Police say around seven-o'clock last night, a man called dispatch and said there was a bomb in the building.

Authorities evacuated the courthouse, which also houses the sheriff's department and dispatch center.

Jail inmates were also moved to the far end of the building.

The threat appears to be a hoax - no explosives were found during a search of the facility.
