Dorm evacuated at Arkansas State after bomb threat
Tuesday - 9/18/2012, 8:54pm EDT
JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A dormitory that was evacuated following a bomb threat at Arkansas State University has been deemed safe.
University spokeswoman Gina Bowman says the threat came in Tuesday afternoon targeting the University Hall dorm, which houses nearly 400 students. Residents were immediately evacuated, as was the nearby International Student Center.
She says campus police conducted a room-by-room search with bomb-sniffing dogs, though no evidence of a bomb was found. Students were allowed to return Tuesday evening.
Bowman says a 44-year-old local man accused of making the threat has been arrested.
School officials don't believe the incident is related to bomb threats that sparked recent campus-wide evacuations at Louisiana State University, the University of Texas in Austin and the University of North Dakota in Fargo. No explosives were found on those campuses.
