A bomb threat closed West Point's Visitor Center in Highland Falls temporarily on Thursday.

U.S. Military Academy officials say they evacuated the visitor control center after a man claimed there was a bomb in his vehicle near the Thayer Gate in Highland Falls.

Officials immediately evacuated the area and closed down Main Street near the installation.

Military, state and local police conducted a full search of the grounds, and determined that there was no explosive material.

Once the bomb squad gave the all-clear, the visitor control center resumed normal operations.

The scare is the second false alarm at West Point within the week. On Monday, a tipster called authorities claiming a man resembling bombing suspect Ahman Khan Rahami entered West Point.
