The Indiana State University Building previously thought to be under a bomb threat has officially been given the “all-clear.”
This after a call to the Indiana State University Police Department was received Friday at 11:25 AM reporting a note found in the building stating that a bomb had been placed in the Science Building on campus and was set to go off at 11:35 AM.
A series of general searches were conducted by police and nothing suspicious was found. Furthermore, an additional search took place utilizing specialists and “bomb-sniffing” canines. This last search was completed at 2:55 PM, and nothing suspicious turned up that time, either.
The Science Building and the surrounding restricted areas were open for public use immediately following the final sweep of the building.
Police officers will be in the building until 9 PM to assist people to pick up their personal belongings.
The Indiana State University Police will be continuing the investigation.
