OROVILLE, Calif. – Authorities have obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect who sent a threat to Butte College Friday, according to the college’s website.
On the morning of April 16, a threatening voicemail was received by Butte College’s Law Enforcement Academy, police said. As a result, the college chose to only allow in those who had classes or other business at its main campus in Oroville.
Butte College Campus Police Chief, Casey Carlson, worked throughout the day with local law enforcement and determined all campus services will remain open as normally scheduled.
The Butte College Police Department, Butte County Sheriff’s Office, and FBI said they worked together to identify a suspect.
On Friday evening, law enforcement said it obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect for a felony count of making criminal threats. Law enforcement determined the suspect does not reside anywhere near Butte County.
