YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: The message “this building will blow up at noon” scrawled on a bathroom wall led to the evacuation and search — with negative results — of Lincoln Technical Institute in Mahwah this morning.

School administators called police at 9:46 a.m. after a student alerted them to the message, apparently written in ink, above a sink in a men’s bathroom, Police Chief James Batelli said this afternoon.

The Bergen County Police Bomb Squad and K-9 unit swept the building, which was then reopened for administrators and faculty. Classes were cancelled until tomorrow.
