Officials at the University of Colorado's Anschutz campus dealt with a bomb scare Wednesday.

A suspect has been arrested in Jefferson County.

He was handed over to Aurora Police, the department says. They identify him as Nathan Elliott Burleson of Morrison.

Police covered the campus and cleared the hospital but nothing was found.

The 30-year-old suspect was arrested for false reporting of an explosive device and interference with an educational facility. 

His mug shot is not available. 

Normal operations were not disrupted.
