Budisavljevic and Montoya have been suspended from the university and currently face one felony charge and one misdemeanor charge, according to the KKTV website.

In a statement from the Office of External Affairs, the students confessed they were the writers of the bomb threat that was discovered in the Student Center, at 10:32 a.m. Tuesday morning.

“The sheriff’s office will remain at increased staffing throughout the weekend, even though there is no longer a viable threat to campus,” according to a campus-wide e-mail.
