Another NJ student charged after school threat in Atlantic County
HAMILTON (Atlantic) — Another student has been criminally charged after making threats against a local school, according to township police.
Hamilton Township police said they investigated a threat last weekend that was deemed “not credible,” though they did track down a person responsible for it.
That individual, whose identity was not released, was charged with terroristic threats and causing false public alarm.
“The Township of Hamilton Police take matters like this very seriously and we will investigate them thoroughly,” the police department said in a written release on Wednesday.
“Anyone responsible for such threats will be charged accordingly.”
