Nutley Police Arrest Juvenile Accused of Making Threats Against Library

Nutley NJ Juvenile Offense AttorneysNutley NJ police recently arrested a juvenile in connection with threats made against a local library.

Officials with the Nutley Public Library contacted Nutley NJ police after reportedly receiving a threat. According to law enforcement, two kids went to the Nutley library and issued threats.

Law enforcement immediately responded by shutting down the library. This included blocking nearby streets, which led to traffic being backed up as parents attempted to pick up their children from a school located near the building.

It was later determined that the threats were not likely to be acted upon. Fortunately, nobody sustained any injuries or was placed in any danger by the threatening conduct.

Authorities have not indicated the nature of the threats made against the library or whether any violent actions were taken by the juvenile suspect.

Nutley detectives investigated the allegations and eventually arrested one minor. He has been charged with a juvenile crime for creating a false public alarm.

Since the offense was classified as a juvenile crime, the minor suspect was later released to the custody of his parents.

Detectives with the Nutley Police Department are still investigating the threats against the library. According to authorities, another minor may have also been involved. The second juvenile may face juvenile offense charges in connection with the alleged threat.

Thomas Strumolo, the Nutley police chief, issued a press release about the arrests and said that law enforcement takes “every threat or suspicious incident very seriously” and acts quickly “to first safeguard the public, then inform the community as quickly as possible to help alleviate fear and concern.”
