MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — Officials say a bomb threat that turned out to be a hoax caused the Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment to be completely evacuated on Friday.

Several law enforcement agencies responded to the Lowe Mill area of Seminole Drive, which is technically not in Huntsville City limits.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) said their department conducted a thorough search of the building and surrounding area.

MCSO’s Brent Patterson told News 19 that the department takes the safety of citizens seriously.
