Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police say a call about a bomb in the men's bathroom at police headquarters in downtown Tampa was a hoax.

After receiving an anonymous call around 11:42 a.m., TPD searched the building and didn't find anything, however, they did find an unattended bag near the entrance of the department's parking garage.

TPD's Bomb Squad used its robot to open the device and render it safe. The bomb technicians determined the bag was empty.

The scene was cleared shortly afterwards and the garage was reopened.
