Classes were cancelled at one Texas A&M building Wednesday morning after a bomb threat was made at the university late Tuesday night.

A&M officials say the threat at Heldenfels Hall prompted University Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to search the building.

"The facility was unoccupied at the time. There was no imminent threat to anyone as the search was being conducted," Chief Elmer Schneider said. "The building was closed down and officers were posted around the facility during that time."

Although nothing was found during the search, classes were cancelled as a pre-cautionary measure.

"In our society today you always have to err on the side of caution and so that's what led us to today," Schneider said. "But we do consider this a very serious matter and we will continue the investigation."

Classes will resume Thursday.

If you have any information about this crime, please contact the University Police Department at 845-2345.
