Auburn University offering reward after campus threats

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. - A $10,000 reward is being offered after recent Auburn University threats lead to the cancellation of classes and campus disruptions.

On Wednesday, classes held at the Haley Center were canceled for several hours while Auburn Police searched the building. University officials said Wednesday morning the building had been evacuated because of a bomb threat.

A week earlier, classes were canceled throughout campus after threatening writing was found on a bathroom wall inside the Haley Center.

"Engaging in threats that disrupt school and causes public alarm is a felony offense," Auburn police said in a news release sent to WRBL News 3 late Wednesday afternoon. "The Police Division with the assistance of other state and federal agencies, including the FBI, is actively investigating both cases and intends to utilize all resources to identify those responsible."

Authorities encourage anyone with information about who may have written the threats or anyone who sees suspicious activity to contact the Auburn Police Department at 334-501-3140. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call 334-246-1391.
