SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- One man is in custody, but police are still trying to figure out his involvement with a bank threat made Thursday morning at the Bank of America.

It happened around 11:40, the Bank of America in downtown Sunnyside received a threatening phone call, police believe it was someone inside the bank. When officers arrived on scene they took one man into custody without incident. Police haven't released the man's name, they're stopping short of calling him a suspect.

"He's in custody, under investigation. Statements will tell us a little bit more about what happened," said Charlotte Hinderlider, Sunnyside Police Department.

Police also have the phone they believe was used to make the threat. The FBI is taking over the investigation, which is common in bank threats. The bank was closed for the rest of the day, but employees were kept in the bank for questioning.  

No one was injured during the threat or arrest.
