POLICE are investigating a suspected hoax bomb threat that forced the evacuation of the Easternwell building in Russell St.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said a person called the business about 11.30am.

Staff vacated the building for about half an hour while police and specialist firefighters searched it for the alleged explosive.
