Police say they are investigating after a call of a bomb threat resulted in the evacuation of an animal hospital in Lake Zurich Thursday afternoon.
The Lake Zurich Fire Rescue Department and Lake Zurich Police Department responded around 4 p.m. Thursday to Companion Animal Hospital, 917 South Rand Road in Lake Zurich.
Lake Zurich Deputy Police Chief David Anderson told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that officers were notified of a bomb threat.
Anderson said a phone call conveying the threat was made to the business, which then called the police.
Officers cleared everyone out of the animal hospital and requested a bomb detection canine to the scene.
A Cook County Sheriff’s Office bomb detection dog responded and performed a sweep of the building, Anderson said.
The search of the building resulted in no devices being found.
The employees were allowed to return to the building after approximately two hours.
Anderson called the incident “isolated” and said it remains under investigation.
No charges have been filed yet pending the investigation.
