Employees were evacuated from the Cass County Courthouse on Friday, June 21, because of a bomb threat.

The buildings were search by sheriff’s deputies, a Berrien County K-9 and security personnel.

No explosives or suspicious packages were found.

By 12:30 p.m., workers were allowed back into both buildings.

By late Friday afternoon, the sheriff’s department stated they were close to identifying a suspect.
