A former university employee has been arrested and charged for making two bomb threats against the campus this week.

According to Channel 13, the employee is connected with two threats at Texas A&M University. The threats prompted campus security personnel to issue separate “Code Maroon” alerts in both incidents.

A threat was made this morning against the Clayton W. Williams, Jr., Alumni Center. The building was cleared and reopened about an hour later.

Another threat was called in Wednesday evening, alleging a bomb was placed near Kyle Field. That incident resulted in the evacuation of neighboring buildings, and university officials to request for federal help in investigating the matter.

Today’s threat was the fifth incident requiring a Code Maroon alert this school year.
