Security Increased At Penn State’s Beaver Stadium After Bomb Threat, Searches Find Nothing Suspicious
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (CBS) – Beaver Stadium at Penn State University received an anonymous bomb threat on Friday night.
The threat, which was made anonymously, resulted in numerous searches by both local police and the FBI, as well as increased security on-site.
Penn State’s stadium has been secured since Tuesday, but police did bring in bomb-sniffing dogs and additional personnel to check the stadium on Friday night and Saturday morning.
Investigators turned up nothing unusual in either search, but fans are encouraged to arrive at the gates earlier than usual, as extra safety measures may cause entrance delays. Inspections will be more thorough, and the University’s bag regulations will be strictly enforced.
Anyone who sees anything out of the ordinary is urged to contact police immediately by calling 814-863-1111 or 911, or by approaching any of the officers on duty in and around the stadium.
