Bomb Scare Leads to Evacuation of Bergen County Courthouse
Law enforcement recently evacuated several Bergen County NJ building after getting bomb threats.
The first call about a possible bomb was received around 10:00 a.m. The caller reportedly said that there were bombs in both the Bergen County Justice Center in Hackensack New Jersey and Bergen Community College in Paramus NJ.
As soon as officials became aware of the bomb threats, cops were dispatched to the sites to evacuate the buildings and make sure that no one suffered any injuries.
At least three buildings had to be evacuated, including the Bergen County NJ courthouse, Bergen Community College, and an unspecified administrative building in Bergen County.
A Bergen County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson later issued a statement to the media and indicated that cops and bomb squads looked through the buildings and made sure there were no bombs inside.
Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office detectives are actively investigating the situation. Detectives have yet to identify a suspect in the case.
If police can eventually identify and apprehend the person responsible, it’s possible that the culprit would face criminal charges for terroristic threats and making a false public alarm.
