The Union County Courthouse was evacuated Tuesday morning after a suspicious package arrived in the morning mail.
Bomb squad technicians and Hazmat crews responded to the Courthouse when the evacuation order came in just after 9:30 a.m.
People inside the courthouse this morning tell WBTV they were ordered to evacuate across the street before court proceedings even started.
At about 12:30 p.m., several blocks were still blocked off and WBTV's crew at the scene said it looked like a ghost town.
By 12:45 p.m., the Sheriff's Office said it was wrapping up the investigation. Investigators said the package did not contain any explosives or hazardous materials and was not sent with the intention of disrupting court.
The Sheriff's Office said the package was addressed to the Clerk of Court's office, which is housed in the same building at 400 N. Main Street.
Shortly after 1 p.m., investigators said a man mailed the package believing the items inside it should be part of his civil court case file. He did not intend to cause a problem, and no one was hurt.
WBTV crews at the scene are learning the Courthouse is expected to reopen at 2 p.m.
