TERRACE RCMP have a suspect in mind for the bomb threat at Northwest Community College that turned out to be a hoax in October.

That’s according to inspector Dana Hart in the city council agenda for its last meeting Dec. 10.

“A suspect has been identified and police are continuing their investigation,” he wrote.

On October 2, police evacuated the college after a bomb threat was received.

An RCMP explosives detection police dog was called in and searched the campus and more than a dozen buildings for five hours but turned up nothing.

In November, the college received two more threats that were deemed to not be dangerous and the campus was not evacuated either time.

Police have not provided any more information about these threats so it’s not known if they are related to the bomb threat.
