WEST HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- A young woman is charged with making bomb threats that twice closed a University of Connecticut campus last week.
Kendriana Manning, 19, of East Hartford was arrested Tuesday, the Hartford Courant reported.
The Greater Hartford UConn campus in West Hartford got two e-mails Oct. 19 warning a bomb would explode, police said. Two days later university officials received another, more threatening, e-mail.
The campus was shut down, students evacuated and classes canceled on both days as police searched the buildings and grounds. No bomb turned up either time.
After tracing the e-mails' origins, police arrested Manning. She has been charged with falsely reporting an incident, second-degree breach of peace, first-degree threatening, second-degree harassment and an act of terrorism.
Police would not confirm whether Manning was a UConn student, but she is listed as such in the university's online phone directory.
Manning was freed on a $50,000 bond and is to appear in court in Hartford Nov. 2.
