Arrest made in Canadian university threats
by UPI

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- A University of British Columbia student has been arrested and charged with making threats that caused two campus lockdowns a month ago, police said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Monday that Hwi Lee, 19, was arrested last Friday, but wouldn't give any details about what threats were made Jan. 30 and Feb. 4, The Province reported Tuesday.

The Vancouver newspaper said it had discovered the target of the threats was a female member of the campus security staff. The report said the woman confirmed that in a telephone interview, but wouldn't offer any details.

Court documents said as part of his release conditions, Lee surrendered his passport and is barred from campus during the investigation. He is scheduled to appear in court March 20.

RCMP Cmdr. Peter German said the university has systems in place for students to have their grievances addressed, and the fear and disruption among University of British Columbia's 45,000 students had been unnecessary.

"Threats are no way to solve problems," he said.
