Yekaterinburg student in custody for college bomb threat prank
The college's director received the email at approximately 9 a.m. local time on Sunday. The message claimed that more than 880 pounds of explosives had been placed underneath a building at the school's campus, the Moscow Times reports.
In the email, the student threatened to detonate the explosives unless he was given $1 million. When apprehended, the student allegedly told police that the email was intended as a joke.
Police, however, deployed explosives specialists and canine units to conduct a search of the college, according to the Moscow Times.
