Report: Holmdel Bomb Scare Was A Hoax

The bomb scare at St. John Vianney HIgh School reported earlier today was a hoax, according to a report on Holmdel-Hazlet Patch.

Acting-Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni says a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of St. John Vianney High School Wednesday was a hoax.

“We’re looking at it hard and believe it to be a hoax and we will be investigating it thoroughly,” said Gramiccioni.

Gramiccioni said the Holmdel Police Department received a call at 10:39 a.m. indicating that a bomb was on the premises of St. John Vianney and that the caller was carrying a weapon. Following the call, the school was locked down and students and staff were evacuated.

Responding to the scene were Holmdel, Hazlet and Matawan police departments, State Police, and the Monmouth County Emergency Response Team. Gramiccioni said the FBI also offered to assist.

No weapons or explosives were found after the school was swept twice. The school was cleared at 2:45 p.m.

“It was an unsubstantiated threat and appears to be a hoax,” said Gramiccioni.

If you have any information regarding the incident, call the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 800-533-744
