ANNAPOLIS, Md.- The Maryland Statehouse was evacuated Tuesday after a bomb threat was called in to Baltimore police.
After a search of the building by three bomb-sniffing dogs, authorities were allowed to return to work at about 5:30 p.m.
Rutherford said Gov. Robert Ehrlich and Lt. Gov. Michael Steele were in the building and were escorted to safety. Members of the House of Delegates were starting to gather for a 4 p.m. session, but it was canceled.
