One person is in custody in connection with last week's bomb threat at UL.
Devin Haywood, 30, is accused of both the bomb threat and an attempted armed robbery of a Moss Street bank.
Officials announced the arrest at a press conference held at 9:30 a.m. at the Lafayette Police Department.
The threat was called into the KATC newsroom at approximately 5:30 a.m. last Wednesday. Police evacuated Girard Park and the UL campus. Roads around campus were also closed, causing a virtual shutdown of all activity in the area. Officials found a suspicious device in a trash can at Girard Park, but that device turned out to be non-explosive.
