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 The alert was retracted Tuesday.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."
