UPDATE: Monmouth County authorities have given the "all clear" at the scene of the Freehold Raceway Mall evacuation site following a reported bomb threat Monday evening.

This comes only days after the evacuation of the Ocean County Mall following a bomb threat, another local mall has fallen victim to a possible case of "swatting".

The Lakewood Scoop is reporting that a phoned-in threat has resulted in the mass evacuation of the Freehold Raceway Mall just a short while ago.

 


 

Of course, police must treat all threats as serious, so the mall is reportedly being evacuated and searched.
