LANSING TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 43-year-old man is in custody after police became suspicious of his behavior at the Lansing Township Hall, located at 3209 west Michigan Avenue, Wednesday morning.

The man drove a vehicle to the building around 9 a.m. this morning, then left and drove back in a different vehicle, leaving it at the building.

The man’s suspicious behavior and switching of vehicles led police to treat the situation as a bomb threat.

Bomb-sniffing dogs, police and the MSU Bomb Squad all responded to the scene.

There were no injuries and no harmful materials found at the scene.

The van, which was left at the building by the 43-year-old man was towed away from the building around 10 a.m.

The incident did cause some hiccups in traffic. Michigan Avenue between Deerfield and Bonair was closed for a short period of time.

Traffic was also directed away from the township hall while the van was being towed away.
