Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor confirms that two students have been arrested for the threat made to the CSU-Pueblo campus on March 8.
The threat was found written on a piece of paper left at the student center saying that Wednesday would be the day "Operation Bomb CSU-Pueblo" would take place.
Investigators arrested Simon Budisavljevic and Charles Evan Montoya for the threat. They made the arrests after a student tipped them off.
Budisavljevic is a pre-engineering major at the University. Montoya is a biology major. Both students are freshman at CSU-Pueblo, but live off campus. They have been suspended and are not allowed back on campus until their hearing.
The sheriff says right now they face one felony charge and one misdemeanor charge. Formal charges will be filed soon.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office will keep increased staff on campus this weekend even though there is not a "credible threat."
