The alarm was raised after a suspicious object was found in the Mill Road area of the Co Antrim town on Monday afternoon.
Army bomb squad officers were tasked to the scene.
They carried out tests on the object and later declared it a hoax.
A police spokesperson said: "The security alert in Mill Road has now ended. Mill Road has been reopened to traffic."
