    On Thursday, October 8, 2015, at approximately 5:46 p.m. staff at Monterey Peninsula College (MPC) received a call that there was a bomb at the Business Math & Computer Sciences (BMC) building. MPC administration and MPC security acted immediately as the Monterey Police Department (MPD) was responding.

    The BMC building was evacuated and the MPC Staff and MPD worked together to search the building. It is normal that police officers search locations with staff, as staff can advise if there are things that are not normally present. After searching the building, MPC Staff and MPD determined that the call was most likely a hoax. Unfortunately calls of this type are not infrequent.

    The MPC and MPD take all potential threats seriously and will investigate appropriately.

    The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to call the MPD Investigations Division at 831-646-3809 or the confidential tip line at 831- 646-3840.
