Bomb threat determined to be prank

BY SAM GRINGLAS

After University Police received a bomb threat directed at an on-campus location early Friday, officials have determined the threat was likely a prank.

University Police received a call shortly before 1 a.m. indicating a vehicle parked in a campus structure contained an explosive. Officials searched the structure, but did not find any explosives.

Though an investigation is pending, University Police reported the phone number has been connected to previous prank calls, according to an inquiry with the phone company.
