Perpetual student sends suspicious package to Altas

Yesterday morning a vindictive student delivered a small package to the Atlas building on the campus. The premises remained evacuated for some time.

At about 11 o'clock this morning a small package the size of half a shoebox and packed in foil was delivered to the reception desk of the Atlas building. The alarm was raised immediately, after which the some 400 employees vacated the building.
The person who delivered the package is being detained. It has become evident that this individual is a frustrated student who has never managed to graduate. Something for which he holds the university responsible. The 35-year-old man is believed to have sent a menacing email to one of the university's employees last week.
Atlas was given the all-clear shortly before 1 p.m. The small package contained nothing hazardous. Wageningen UR has reported the incident to the police.
