Emailed bomb threat briefly upends business at Minnesota Capitol

An emailed bomb threat to the Minnesota State Capitol on Wednesday morning briefly shut down the building for a security sweep, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The state was one of many Capitols across the country to receive such a threat, patrol spokeswoman Lt. Jill Frankfurth said in a written statement.

Security learned of the threat about 9 a.m. and locked the building while troopers and Matka, an explosive-detecting Hungarian Vizsla dog, conducted searches for about 45 minutes beginning at 9:30 a.m. Nothing suspicious or threatening was found and the building was reopened.
