BATON ROUGE - Louisiana State University officials say everything is back to normal a day after a bomb threat spawned an evacuation of the Baton Rouge campus.

University spokesman Herb Vincent said Tuesday LSU police are leading the investigation into the caller who phoned in a bomb threat Monday morning.

Louisiana State Police superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson said the caller will be arrested and prosecuted.

Thousands of students, professors and workers left campus after a threat was phoned into 911 Monday. Police and bomb-sniffing dogs methodically swept through each of the 250 buildings before giving the all-clear later that evening.

Campuses in Texas, North Dakota, and Ohio were evacuated Friday after receiving bomb threats, but police found no explosives. LSU officials say it isn't clear if the threats are related.
