Glendale — The bomb threat that closed the Columbia St. Mary’s office center Friday morning was a false alarm.
 
A receptionist at the office center, located at 4255 Port Washington Road, received a phone call at 7:45 a.m. Friday from a person claiming that a bomb was going to go off in the building, said Glendale police officer Joel Dhein. The receptionist called Glendale police, whom upon arrival, closed Port Washington Road and evacuated 50 people from the building. 
 
“There weren’t many people there because of the time of day,” Dhein said. 
 
Glendale police did not find any explosives in the building. The police then called the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad, which also did not find any explosives. In addition to being the corporate headquarters of Columbia St. Mary’s, the building also houses several other businesses.
 
Dhein said Port Washington Road  and the office building were opened around noon.
