Monmouth Court House Will Reopen Tomorrow. Bomb Threat Was An Apparent Hoax

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden said that the K-9 search for explosives in the Court House this afternoon came up negative and that normal operations will resume tomorrow.

A male caller using a cell phone in Freehold Borough called 9-11 at 12:40 this afternoon and said that there were pipe bombs in the Court House that would explode this afternoon.

Investigators from the sheriff’s office and the prosecutor’s office are investigating the call.

Golden said there is no indication that the incident is in anyway related to the unsolved chemical/environmental event that closed the Court House for a week last June.

  1. Too bad said at 7:44 am on October 26th, 2012:

    That when we were all persuaded to vote to put the courthouse employees on the state’s payroll, the measure didn’t include the maintenance of the building. It costs the counties a ton of money and yet they’re at the mercy of the unions and judges’ paranoias/demands. Ps: vote “yes”to make the judges contribute to their pensions on election day!
