Students at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut are being told to leave campus after a reported bomb threat Thursday morning.

The community college posted a message via social media rearding the threat:

“Report of threat to campus at 2:45pm. Calmly leave campus. Classes/services are closed until at least 4:30pm. NOT A DRILL.”

Deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Walnut station are handling the response to the threat. There are traffic issues on surface streets around the college as students are leaving en mass, according to Sheriff’s broadcast traffic. Deputies from San Dimas, Temple and Industry stations are en route to assist with traffic control.

Deputies were dispatched to the call around 10:40 p.m.

Deputies have barricades set up around Mt. SAC to prevent re-entry.

Nearby Walnut High School is on lockdown, but it is unclear if this is due to an abundance of caution, of if the high school is part of the same threat.
