Police investigating after bomb threat reported at Utah Tech University
UPDATE: Police say the scene has been secured “with no threat to the public.”
Additional information was also provided to KSL Tuesday afternoon by Jyl Hall, director of public relations for Utah Tech University.
Hall states a telephone call of a bomb threat was made just after 3 p.m.
“It was indicated that it was at the Smith’s Computer Center, so we immediately had our Utah Tech Police Department evacuate the area. They quickly evacuated all of the buildings on the south side of campus,” she said.
A bomb squad then responded to the scene.
ST. GEORGE, Utah — Police are asking the public to avoid the area after a bomb threat was reported Tuesday afternoon at Utah Tech University in St. George.

Mitchell said special investigation teams are looking into the incident.
“We’re treating it as a credible threat until it is proven otherwise.”
