UPDATE – CBC Campus to Reopen Friday Morning
The Pasco and Richland CBC campuses will reopen after a bomb threat closed campus Thursday.
Shortly after 11:20 a.m. Thursday, a voicemail message left at Columbia Basin College indicated there was a bomb, possibly multiple bombs. Pasco police say that time has expired.
Students were sent text messages and other communications to inform them of the need to evacuate the campus. The Richland Bomb Squad was notified, but apparently not deployed. According to CBC officials, Pasco police determined it was what they called a "credible threat."
Police did not say if they had a suspect.
