MANHATTAN — The Kansas State University Police Department determined that a suspicious bag found at 2:15 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, on the northeast entrance ramp to Bramlage Coliseum was not a threat.
The item was an unattended flashlight wrapped in duct tape. Foot traffic around the area was rerouted to other gates for safety during the investigation.
As part of safety procedures, members of the Kansas Highway Patrol canine bomb team — who are a regular part of the university’s pregame safety checks — examined the contents and requested a further inspection by X-ray.
Members of the K-State-Riley County police bomb team were dispatched to the area and a member of the K-State Police Department, who is part of the team, examined and took an X-ray of the bag and contents.
