CHADRON, Neb. (AP) - Chadron State College officials have said a report about an armed man on campus proved to be false.

The dorms were locked down for about six hours Saturday night and Sunday morning as police searched the campus. A 16-year-old boy arrested in connection with a stolen vehicle south of the campus had told officers that an armed man was involved and in the area.

College officials locked down the dorms but didn’t make a public announcement at the Chicoine Center, where a basketball game was being played. Students who’d been at the game were allowed back into their dorms after showing identification.

The boy was arrested on suspicion of several crimes, including terrorist threats, theft by unlawful taking and false reporting.
