Update 6:46 p.m.

According to John Feeley, director for public relations for Front Range Community College, police underwent a “thorough search of the college and found nothing of concern.”


“A student found a note in a bathroom in our Long’s Peak Student Center that said a bomb would go off somewhere in the building,” Feeley said. “It did not specify when or where.”

This was the only time Feeley could recall a threat occurring at the Larimer campus, though he did note that there have been similar threats at the Westminster and Boulder campuses.

The Larimer campus was the only facility closed today, said Feeley. Their satellite at the Prospect Center located on Taft Hill Road and Prospect as well as their Community Learning Center in Loveland remained open.

Feeley said the campus would remain more aware and that classes would resume tomorrow at 1p.m.

Update 3:18 p.m.

In a press release written by Sgt. Jerrod Kinsman from Fort Collins Police Services, a FRCC student found a written bomb threat within the school. Fort Collins police services were contacted around 1:00 p.m. by Front Range staff.

“The Northern Colorado Bomb Team has responded and is in the process of determining the credibility of the threat,” Kinsman wrote.
