Loaves of bread discovered on the Casper College campus and reportedly laced with LSD were found to contain no drugs, college officials said Tuesday.

The college issued a release Monday afternoon a few hours after the loaves were discovered in a student's car and said the Casper Police Department tested the bread and confirmed the loaves contained LSD.

According to Tuesday's release, the police conducted additional tests and concluded the suspicious loaves contained no controlled substances.

A student found three unexplained loaves of bread on the passenger seat of his car Monday afternoon and reported them to campus security. During a field test, campus security identified the makeup of the bread as consistent with that of the drug LSD, Casper College Director of Public Relations Rich Fujita said.

The college issued a campus alert on Monday warning students not to eat food of unknown origin. The alert was retracted Tuesday.

Fujita said whenever there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of Casper College students, employees or visitors, the college will issue an emergency notification.

"There will unavoidably be times when we later discover that there is no threat, but it is important that campus community members have information quickly so they can take action to protect themselves if necessary," Fujita said. "We'd rather send out 100 false alerts, even 1,000 false alerts, than to not notify the community of a possible risk to their safety."

    And the cop probably regrets his premature assessment of illegal goings on...and he should...

    There is another good reason why Wyoming Community College security officers aren't issued firearms or certified as peace officers.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
