Student Arrested in Harvard Bomb Scare

A student has been arrested in connection to the Harvard bomb scare that took place Monday morning on the ivy league school’s campus. The student admitted to the FBI that he sent a bomb threat in order to get out of a final exam, which ultimately lead the university to evacuate multiple buildings and caused unnecessary fear, federal officials said Tuesday.

Instead of taking his final and going home for winter break, 20-year-old Eldo Kim was arrested Tuesday and is being held overnight on federal bomb hoax charges. He is scheduled to appear in US District Court on Wednesday, according to US Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz’s office.

The FBI said Kim sent an anonymous e-mail to Harvard officials, campus police, and others at about 8:30 a.m. Monday warning of “shrapnel bombs” in four buildings per Boston.com.

The threat caused the university to evacuate three buildings in the Harvard Yard including Emerson, Thayer, and Sever Halls, as well as the Science Center nearby, just as the 9 a.m. final exams were set to begin.

The threat came just eight months after another tragedy occurred, the well known Boston Marathon attack, sending a swarm of law enforcement agencies to investigate the possible threat and attracting international media attention.

The threat understandably disrupted the ivy league campus for the majority of the day and forced multiple exams to be postponed.

According to an FBI affidavit, Kim used a disposable, temporary e-mail address and a temporary Internet Protocol to send his warning. The subject line read “bombs placed around campus” and was sent to two university officials, Harvard police, and the student newspaper.

FBI agent Thomas M. Dalton said Kim admitted to sending the hoax, strategically picking Emerson Hall, the site of his exam, and three other targets.

A bomb-hoax charge under federal law carries a maximum sentence of up to five years in perison, three years of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

Luckily the Harvard bomb scare ended up just being that, a scare, and no one was injured.
