Bomb Threat: Update 

Quite a scare at the University of Maine Saturday.A bomb threat fortunately turned out to be a false alarm.University Spokesperson, Joe Carr, says graffiti was found on the stairwell of Cumberland Hall.He says the graffiti said there is was a bomb in the bathroom of that residence hall.Carr says students were evacuated as a precaution.A bomb-sniffing dog was brought in to access the situation and found nothing.Carr says they tried to make things as smooth for the students as possible.”Well residence halls on a Sunday afternoon and evening are, of course, just about full with students and they’re studying and preparing for the upcoming week. So it’s significantly disruptive to those students for sure We did activate most of the university’s emergency communication system.””It’s just kind of a minor inconvenience. A little small anxiety that something could happen to all my stuff is a bit irritating. But other than that it’s whatever.”Carr says this is the first bomb threat in quite a few years and is not a common thing to occur at the university.He says students were able to return to their residence hall just after 6 Saturday night.
