Workers have returned to the Oklahoma County Courthouse after the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office cleared the building of suspicious devices.

Someone called in a bomb threat to the courthouse around 11:30 a.m. The building was evacuated and streets around the courthouse were closed while deputies and Oklahoma City police officers searched for possible explosives.

Deputies and police swept the building and surrounding streets. They only found a bag filled with trash. 

Everyone was allowed to return to work around 1:15 p.m.
