LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4)– Two buildings on the Front Range Community College in Longmont were evacuated on Wednesday morning after the school received a threat. The campus was given the all clear at 1:30 p.m. and students were invited back to campus at 4 p.m.

Longmont Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur told CBS4 that the school at 2121 Miller Drive was evacuated after a threat was discovered written on the wall.

Police believed the threat was credible and evacuated the school at 9:30 a.m. The Boulder County Bomb Squad searched the campus for anything suspicious. The bomb squad did not find anything suspicious and cleared the campus at 1:30 p.m.

Anyone with information about the threat is asked to call the Longmont Police Department at (303) 651-8501.

Police are investigating whether Wednesday’s threat was related to a social media threat at the Front Range Community College Larimer campus in Fort Collins on Friday. That school was evacuated as a precaution.

“It’s all precautionary right now … it’s heightened because of the other threats we’ve received in the last couple of days,” Satur said.

Police arrested Sebastian Calvo for suspicion of interference with staff, faculty or students of educational institutions. Calvo was a student at the college.

“I’m thinking someone just wanted to be a copycat or thought they could get a day off, but in the end we will have to do the work at some other point,” student Leon Fueller said. “We’re just going to cram in to a shorter schedule now. I just think it’s very stupid, it’s just burning money.”

Front Range Community College has campuses in Westminster, Longmont, Fort Collins and Brighton.
