DAWSONVILLE - Authorities on the scene at a Dawson County doctor's office where a bomb threat was phoned in Thursday morning say they found no evidence of a threat to the medical center.

"We did an initial sweep ourselves when the report was first called in, but also brought a bomb detection K9 in from another county to do a sweep, just as a precaution," said Dawson County Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Tony Wooten.

Employees at Chestatee Emergent Medical Care received the call just after 8 a.m. warning of a potential bomb at office located on Thompson Road at the intersection of Hwy. 53 east of Dawsonville.

Wooten said the incident remains under investigation.
