No bombs were found in three St. Mary's County buildings after a bomb threat was called in Thursday morning.

The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office says they received two calls from the same male individual at 8:10 a.m., claiming there were bombs inside Leonardtown High School, the District Court for the county and the Circuit Court for the county. 

The school was placed on lockdown while the Circuit Court building was evacuated. Authorities say the District Court was not evacuated.

“I am greatly disappointed in the actions of the caller who made the threat directed at Leonardtown High School today," Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael J. Martirano said. "Their behavior clearly served to disrupt the school and the caller’s conduct is inexcusable."

No bombs were found in any of the locations after the search.

The sheriff is still trying to locate the caller.
