Front Range Community College dealing with third threat in one week

LONGMONT, Colo. - Front Range Community College says classes at its Longmont campus will resume at 4 p.m. Wednesday after a threat closed the school for several hours.

Longmont police told 7NEWS officers were called to the campus Wednesday morning to investigate a bomb threat. However, authorities didn't find any suspicious devices.

This was the third threat in six days at a Front Range Community College campus.

The Larimer campus was evacuated and swept on Monday after a bomb threat. School officials said on social media, "Nothing suspicious was found" in that search.

Additionally, the Larimer campus was evacuated last Friday after someone saw a Snapchat video referencing a "Columbine-type incident" that was shot from inside a classroom.

FRCC student Sebastian Calvo, 19, was arrested and taken to the Larimer County Jail for suspicion of interference with staff, faculty, or students of educational institutions.
