    Two buildings in Lindon were evacuated Monday morning after employees reported finding a threatening note.

    Police were called to Symantec at 9:45 a.m. after the note was found in a mailbox. Lindon police chief Cody Cullimore said officials met with security and decided to evacuate two buildings near 400 S. 600 West.

    Cullimore said police and officials from Symantec "who know if something is out of place" went through the building, but nothing was found out of the ordinary. Bomb-detecting dogs were then brought in, and the employees were let in after about two hours when nothing was found.

    Employees found the note in a drop box at the building, Cullimore said, though there is "no known reason why someone would do this." He said the note did not specify a time frame when a device was to go off, but it did specify which floor it was supposed to be on. He said officials were concerned because the drop box was checked around 8 a.m. and the note was not there. When an employee checked it again at 9:30 a.m., the note had been placed in the box.

    Cullimore would not comment on whether police have any suspects in mind, but said the investigation is ongoing. He said police have some theories they are working on as to the motive for the threat, but he said the note itself hasn't provided much help.

    "There's no motive stated; there's no demand made," he said.

    In his opinion, Cullimore said, the note was left as a way to disrupt business.

    He said that the department gets a couple of incidents like this per year -- usually in the form of suspicious packages.

    "We're not finding actual devices," he said.
