BRYAN, Texas -- A former Texas A&M University employee was arrested by university police Friday in connection with a bomb threat.

Michael Francis Thomas, 43, has been charged with making a terroristic threat, a third degree felony.

The investigation was launched Friday morning immediately after discovering the word “bomb” written on a mirror in the Clayton Williams Jr. 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.

University police said Thomas is also a person of interest in the bomb threat involving Kyle Field earlier in the week, but has not been charged for that incident.

Thomas was also arrested on an unrelated warrant obtained by university police for credit card abuse. This violation is a state jail felony.

Thomas was taken into custody at a Bryan location. He is currently being held in the Brazos County Jail.
