Homes in the Ballynure Road area of the Co Antrim town had to be evacuated when a suspicious object was discovered just after 8am on Wednesday.
It is understood it was found outside the stations' gates.
Army bomb squad officers were tasked to the scene and carried out tests on the object, which was declared an "elaborate hoax".
The alert has now ended, allowing residents to return home and the road to be reopened.
