— Police have arrested a Kennewick man in connection with the bomb threats that shut down Columbia Basin College last week.

Steven Eugene Brown was arrested at his home Wednesday morning. He was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of making the threats.

The multiple threats were called in from one of the CBC campuses on July 18, officials said.

Both the Richland and Pasco campuses were shut down for the night while authorities searched for explosive devices. No explosives were ever found.
