A bomb threat led to the temporary evacuation of Guthrie Hall, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces campus (October 9, 2007).
The bomb threat was received at approximately 11:35 am. The caller indicated that a bomb was in Guthrie Hall. The NMSU Police Department responded and conducted a search of the building. An unattended briefcase found in a hallway of the building resulted in a request for Dona Ana County Bomb Squad technicians to conduct a closer examination. The briefcase was found to be harmless, and explosive detection dogs searched the remainder of the building without incident.
The building was re-opened for normal business at 2:00 pm. A joint investigation into the threat is being conducted by the NMSU Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
