A former Texas A&M University employee has been arrested as a suspect in a bomb threat made against the campus alumni center.

A statement from the A&M campus police said Michael Francis Thomas was arrested in Bryan and charged with making a terroristic threat in the Friday morning threat against the Williams Alumni Center. The threat prompted the issuance of a "Code Maroon" advisory.

The statement also said that Thomas, 43, has been charged in an unrelated credit card abuse case and is "a person of interest" in the bomb threat against A&M's Kyle Field football stadium on Wednesday.

No bombs were found in either threat.
