Georgia Bureau of Investigation officials were in Alapaha following a bank robbery Friday morning.
The Bank of Alapaha on Railroad Street was robbed by at least two people who left a suspicious package on the counter, telling bank employees the package contained a bomb. One of the suspects was carrying a shotgun.
No one was hurt during the robbery, and an undislosed amount of money was taken.
The suspects were searched for by law enforcement Friday afternoon, and the GBI Bomb Disposal Unit was called in to dispose of the package. It was determined about mid-afternoon that there was no bomb.
A car was found about 3 miles from the robbery site, on St. Luke Church Road, engulfed in flames. Investigators examined the car, which was believed to be the getaway car.
The investigation is ongoing.
