Several University officials received emailed bomb threats Wednesday afternoon, though the Harvard University Police Department says they are not credible and no buildings have been evacuated.
In an advisory emailed to Harvard affiliates around 3:30 p.m., Steven G. Catalano, a spokesperson for HUPD, wrote that the threats are not believed to pose a threat to the University.
Other local colleges also received similar threats around the same time. According to Robert Z. Molloy, Deputy Chief of the Boston University Police Department, BU received bomb threats Wednesday over text message. “We are under no concern right now, and we know that it is a hoax threat,” Molloy said.
As HUPD investigates, Catalano warned Harvard staff to “be vigilant” and report suspicious activity.–This is a developing story. Check thecrimson.com for details.
