Wabash National had a scare at its plant in Lafayette, Indiana, on Wednesday when a reported bomb threat proved to be unfounded after a police search failed to find “anything suspicious,” according to the Lafayette Journal & Courier.

"We did a walk through and didn't find anything," Sgt. Jeff Clark told the Journal & Courier.

Clark said Wabash National received information of a threat early in the afternoon and contacted police, according to the Journal & Courier.

Chatter over the police scanner indicated emergency crews were setting up a staging area near Wabash National, but no such area could be located at about 4:15 p.m.

Lafayette police Lt. Brian Gossard said at 5:15 p.m. that officers are still on the scene, working with the assistance of a canine to ensure that the facility is safe.

"They're just going through the plant and clearing it with the dog," Gossard said.

By 6:09 p.m., Gosssard said, "Everything is going back to normal."
