Front Range Community College is offering $1,000 rewards for information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons involved in the recent bomb threats to the college’s Larimer and Boulder County campuses.
The threats took place Sept. 21 at the Larimer Campus in Fort Collins and Sept. 23 at the Boulder County Campus in Longmont.
“We take bomb threats very seriously,” said President Andy Dorsey. “They are crimes, which can carry serious punishments, up to and including time in jail.
“Both proved to be hoaxes,” he said, “but the college had to evacuate the campuses to ensure the safety of the students, employees, and visitors. The evacuations disrupted classes and caused concerns among students and staff. The evacuations also cost students valuable instructional time that many have paid for out of their own pockets.”
Dorsey said people with information should call Gordon Goldsmith, director of Campus Security and Preparedness (CSP), at 303-404-5799. Although callers need to identify themselves, FRCC will not release the identity of any callers. The identification will reside only with the CSP director and will be used to provide the reward.
“If you know anything about the bomb threat, please let us know,” Dorsey said. “Even if you think your information is not important, please call anyway. Even small leads might be helpful.”
