“Woman arrested for making bomb threat

University of Michigan Police arrested a woman Wednesday afternoon shortly after she sent an e-mail containing a bomb threat to officials at the University of Michigan, officials said.

The woman, whose name, age and affiliation with the university are being withheld by police pending arraignment later today, will be charged with making a bomb threat, a felony, said Lt. Jesse Lewit.

Lewit said staff at the University Health Services building on Fletcher Street near Central Campus received the e-mail about 3 p.m. and evacuated the building.

Police cordoned off the building entrances but allowed the surrounding streets to remain open while officers swept the building for suspicious objects for about an hour, Lewit said. None were found and a bomb-sniffing dog indicated no explosives were in the building.”
