Two buildings at SUNY Delhi were evacuated early this morning, after a bomb threat was called in to university police and Delaware County 911. The buildings were declared safe and clear at 11:15 a.m., after a search of the area by police.

The calls came in around 7:13 a.m., according to a news release from the university. The caller told police that bombs had been placed in Evenden Tower and Sanford Hall, and were set to explode at 9:30 a.m. 

The two buildings were evacuated and a perimeter was secured around the area. Police searched the buildings and found no evidence of a bomb or anything else unusual. A state police canine unit participated in the investigation, as well as Delhi village police, campus police, the Delaware County Sheriff's Office, Delaware County Emergency Management, the Delhi fire department and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. 

Classes in Evenden Tower and Sanford Hall were cancelled for the morning, and will resume at 12:30 p.m. All classes in other buildings on the SUNY Delhi campus are being held as usual. 

The campus was the target of a similar bomb threat in March, when a caller told county and campus officials that a bomb had been placed in Evenden Tower and was set to explode in 45 minutes. No arrests were ever made in that case, according to Delaware County Undersheriff Craig DuMond. 

Update, 11:30 a.m.: This story has been updated to note that the buildings have been declared safe and classes have resumed.
