NEWARK, NJ -
Officials at Rutgers University say the FBI has determined there is no threat to students on their Newark campus after a student was arrested and his dorm was searched for potentially hazardous substances.
A spokeswoman says the investigation has concluded and students would be allowed to re-enter the dorm Wednesday afternoon after it had been evacuated twice in two days.
Police arrested sophomore Elan Haba of North Caldwell on Tuesday night on various charges and evacuated his dorm after potentially dangerous materials were found.
The 19-year-old was arrested following a tip from authorities at The University of South Dakota, where a former student with an alleged connection to Haba had been found with suspicious materials.
Haba has been released to his parents. It's not known if he has a lawyer.
