POLICE NEWS: Threat against Ivy Tech campus investigated

GOSHEN — Elkhart County police investigated an alleged threat against the Ivy Tech campus at C.R. 18 and C.R. 17 in Elkhart Tuesday afternoon.

According to Capt. James Bradberry of the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, officers responded to the campus around 2:21 p.m. after being informed of an alleged threat made toward the school.

The school was locked down for precautionary reasons, though it was reopened a short time later after finding that the threat was based upon misinformation or information that had already been investigated by the sheriff’s department.

Elkhart County police Monday reportedly received a report of a threat to a business and/or school. The person who reportedly made the comment was immediately contacted and detained within hours of receiving the information to verify the validity of the report.

No information was received during the investigation to indicate any danger to any school or business or that Ivy Tech was the target or the topic of any threats, Bradberry said. The person making the comments was sent for a mental evaluation and later detained.

“We are continuing to follow information to see if the statements made warrant a criminal act,” Bradberry said.
