COLLEGE STATION, Texas -

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 says 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 the 43-year-old suspect 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.
