PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — PCC Rock Creek campus was given the all clear by authorities after 5000 students were evacuated on Monday due to a bomb threat.

Sgt. Bob Ray with the Washington Co. Sheriff’s Office said the threat was called into 911 around 8 a.m. The caller said a number of bombs would go off at the campus.

The campus on NW Springville Rd was swept by two dozen officers and bomb-sniffing dogs. The search was complete by 11:30 a.m. and nothing suspicious was found.

There are no suspects in the case, but authorities told KOIN 6 News they know the bomb threat was made from a pay phone at a nearby Albertson’s. Surveillance video is being reviewed.

Both day and night classes are canceled at PCC on Monday. The campus will re-open on Tuesday morning.
