Police Investigate Bomb Threat at Newark City Hall

Newark law enforcement recently arrested a local man who reportedly told police officers that he planted a bomb at Newark City Hall.

According to authorities, the suspect approached police officers and said that he had placed a bomb somewhere in City Hall in Newark, NJ. However, the suspect allegedly refused to tell police the exact location of the bomb.

As soon as the suspect made his comments, he was placed under arrest by law enforcement.

Meanwhile, members of both the Newark Police Department Emergency Response Team and the Essex County Sheriff’s Bomb Unit rushed to the scene and evacuated everyone from the building.
A subsequent search of City Hall did not turn up a bomb.

The suspect is a 47-year-old man who resides in Newark, New Jersey. Despite the fact that there was not actually a bomb at Newark City Hall, the suspect still faces criminal charges for creating a false public alarm.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the very serious charges, he would be subject to stiff penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:33-3, a person who circulates a report of an impending bombing while knowing that the report is false can be charged with a third degree felony. A conviction for a third degree felony can lead to a sentence of 3-5 years in New Jersey State Prison.
