EPHRAIM, Utah – Authorities said they have thwarted a possible “terroristic” threat at a local college’s homecoming events.

Officials said last week they were alerted to an anonymous post on a website not associated with Ephraim’s Snow College.

Investigators said the post led them to believe those attending the Snow College homecoming football game and activities could be in danger.

Part of the post stated, “Let’s just say homecoming this weekend is gonna go out with a bang.”

Lawmen were able to identify the person who anonymously posted the threat.

The investigation is ongoing but the good news is no one was injured during the homecoming events.

Authorities worked with the school’s athletic department and staff to ensure everyone was safe during the events.

No arrests have been made at this time.

The Utah Attorney General’s office, the Ephraim Police Department, the Kane County Sheriff’s office and Snow College public safety officers are working together in this investigation.
