COLLEGE STATION, Texas - A former Texas A&M University employee has been arrested by University Police in connection with the bomb threat Friday morning at the Clayton Williams Jr. Alumni Center, police said.

Michael Francis Thomas, 43, has been charged with making a terroristic threat, a third-degree felony, police said. He was taken into custody at a location in Bryan and is currently being held in the Brazos County jail.

Thomas is also a person of interest in the bomb threat involving Kyle Field earlier in the week, but has not been charged. Additionally, Thomas was arrested on an unrelated warrant obtained by the University Police for credit card abuse. This violation is a state jail felony.

The investigation was launched Friday morning immediately after discovering the word bomb written on a mirror in the Williams Alumni Center. Police immediately evacuated the building and issued a Code Maroon alert. Police completed the search of the building and it reopened shortly after 11 a.m.

No other information about Thomas is available at this time.
