EAST LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people face charges in connection to a bomb threat at Spartan Stadium Wednesday, according to the Michigan State University Police Department.

Cynthia Marie Spade, 30, and Anthony Robert Shearer, 31, were charged Thursday with one felony count each of false report of a bomb threat.

Shearer also faces charges of driving with a suspended license and  being a fourth-offense habitual offender. He had two felony convictions in 2004 and another in 2006, MSU PD says.

Spartan Stadium was evacuated Wednesday after a bomb threat was called into police central dispatch. Police searched the stadium but did not find anything dangerous.

Spade and Shearer, both of Lansing, have no affiliation with the university, MSU PD says.

Shearer’s bond was set at $75,000 and Spade’s at $50,000. Both were taken to the Ingham County Jail.

They are expected back in court on July 8.
