SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Amazon’s fulfillment center in San Marcos had a scare on Monday after an employee found a piece of paper in a bathroom indicating there was a bomb in the building.

The city of San Marcos says numerous agencies responded and conducted a walk-through of the warehouse where nothing was found. The police department secured the note for evidence and no other issues were reported at the location at 1401 E. McCarty Lane.

Amazon’s San Marcos location has hundreds of employees fulfilling customer orders in a 855,000-square-foot space.
