Phoned-in bomb threat, hoax suspected; search continues

Early Tuesday, a campus operator received a very brief telephone call, saying that “there is a bomb on campus.” Campus officials believe this to be a hoax, as similar threats have recently been made at other universities.

As of 5 p.m., a considerable portion of the campus has been searched for suspicious devices, and nothing has been found. If individuals see something suspicious on campus they should report it to UCPD at 642-3333. Search efforts will continue on a limited basis into the evening.
