Student Charged with Harvard Bomb Hoax

December 19, 2013  | 

A Harvard University student was named Tuesday in a criminal complaint alleging he was responsible for bomb threats that led school officials to delay some final exams, including his, that had been scheduled for Monday.

Eldo Kim, 20, of Cambridge, allegedly e-mailed bomb threats at about 8:30 a.m. Monday to offices associated with Harvard, including the Harvard University Police Department and the Harvard Crimson, the student-run daily newspaper reportedly to avoid taking a final exam.

The Harvard police called in the FBI; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Secret Service; the Cambridge Police Department and the Boston Police Department along with numerous other first responders, including the Cambridge Fire Department.

The buildings were evacuated and swept by bomb technicians and hazmat officers, and access to Harvard Yard was restricted, CNN reports.

Good! A waste of manpower and taxpayers dollars. Let this be a lesson I hope he has to pay back the city, state and Feds for the labor hours. Then 1 year probation with 6 months of community service. Dump S***! Harvard your doing a great job!
