WESTPORT—Police evacuated Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, after reports of a bomb threat at its 1 Glendinning Place headquarters around 3 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

Everyone was evacuated from the building safely, Lt. David Farrell confirmed. Westport detectives and the FBI are continuing to investigate the threat.

Stamford Police and Connecticut State Police bomb squads searched the building on Wednesday and found no evidence of a bomb, according to a Westport Police press release.

Westport Fire was on the scene “in case things went bad,” Assistant Fire Chief Robert Yost said. Weston Police could also be seen at the Glendinning Place facility aiding Westport Police. By late afternoon, cars and Bridgewater employees could be seen leaving the area.

Police were also at two other Bridgewater locations in Westport, on Nyala Farms Road and Riverside Avenue. Just before 7:30 p.m., Farrell said the decision was up to Bridgewater management whether they would reopen their Glendinning Place facility.
