POSTED: 12:04 p.m. EST, February 27, 2007
ROLLA, Missouri (AP) -- Nearly two dozen people were being decontaminated Tuesday after a white, powdery substance was found on a student who claimed to have a bomb and threatened "terrorist-type" actions at the University of Missouri-Rolla, officials said.
The man, described as a graduate student depressed about his grades, also claimed to have anthrax, according to police. School officials said "possible bomb materials" were found when he was taken into custody.
Twenty-three people were sent through a decontamination process Tuesday morning outside the university's civil engineering building, where a police standoff with the student had started around 2:30 a.m.
Acting Police Chief Mark Kearse said that when police arrived the student was holding a knife and that he held up a bag and said: "This is a bomb." He also claimed to have anthrax.
Police used a stun gun to subdue him and found a note in which the student threatened to destroy the building, Kearse said.
The man's identity and nationality were not released, though school spokesman Lance Feyh said he was an international student.

Classes at the University of Missouri-Rolla will resume tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb. 28), after a threat affecting the civil engineering building forced officials to close the campus today.

A UMR student has been arrested because of the incident, which sparked concerns about a possible bomb and anthrax contamination. Late this afternoon, law enforcement officials were able to determine that those threats were false.

Twenty three individuals, including eight UMR students and one professor, were quarantined for several hours while investigators determined the source of a white powdery substance that was found on the suspect. All 23 individuals were released this afternoon after the substance was determined to be ordinary powdered sugar.

The student’s identity has not been released because charges have not been filed at this time.
