The Roane County Courthouse was evacuated Monday morning for what Sheriff Jack Stockton said were precautionary reasons.
“We found some unsecured doors to the courthouse,” Stockton said.
Stockton said some suspicious wiring also contributed to the evacuation.
A detection dog was brought in to search for explosives. None were found.
The courthouse was opened for normal business after officers determined everything was safe.
