Emergency vehicles parked outside the USF Poly Tech/Polk State College campus after a bomb threat was called in.
Lakeland, Florida -- Polk deputies say nothing suspicious was found after a bomb threat was called in at the USF PolyTech/Polk State College campus in Lakeland on Wednesday.
The schools -- which share the same campus -- were evacuated for nearly two hours after the threat was called in. Classes have since resumed.
Polk deputies say they received a bomb threat on campus several weeks ago, but nothing was found that time, either. Even though the threats are usually fake, officials must take the precautions needed and search the area every time.
Polk deputies say a person who calls in a hoax bomb threat can be charged with a second degree felony.
