HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) — A 22-year-old woman called in bomb threats to a Quinnipiac University’s commencement in Connecticut in a bid keep her family from learning that she wasn’t graduating despite taking money for her education from her mother, according to police.

Danielle Shea of Quincy, Massachusetts, was wearing a cap and gown she’d purchased when she was arrested Sunday, Hamden police said. Police said she gave a detailed confession.

Shea was scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Meriden Superior Court. Shea is being held on $20,000 bond.

It was unclear whether she has an attorney. Messages were left at her mother’s home.

Police said Shea didn’t attend the university this year, but her mother paid thousands of dollars she thought was for her daughter’s education. When graduation arrived, Shea panicked when relatives didn’t see her name on the graduation roster and tried to have the ceremony canceled, they said.

According to police, Shea made two calls to the university’s public safety department. In the first, about 20 minutes before the start of the 6 p.m. graduation ceremony, she stated there was a “bomb in the library,” said police. In the second call, about 20 minutes later, police said Shea warned that “several bombs are on campus” and noted, “You haven’t cleared out graduation. That’s not a good idea.”

Hamden and university police identified Shea using the telephone number she’d called from and then found her at the arena.

Shea was arrested at the indoor campus athletic arena, the TD Bank Sports Center, where the commencement for the university’s College of Arts and Sciences was moved because of the threats.

She is charged with first degree threatening and falsely reporting an incident.

    She will be a black person supervisor and the black person has a Master’s. Her record will be expunged so she can get a clean start.

    Now she’s going to have to tell them that not is she not graduating but she’s also is in jail and need 20k to get out plus a good attorney. Her problem solving skills are off.

    Lol. The rednecks are all over BAW, but I bet they are too cowardly to speak against this. Maybe, rap, or her environment made her steal from her mom, lie, and threaten the lives of hundreds.
