Investigators have charged a Long Branch woman with calling in a false bomb threat to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday. The 48-year old woman now faces a 10-year prison term and a civil fine that could total tens of thousands of dollars, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said on Monday.
Rumson police issued the following press release concerning the originally reported lockdown at RFH earlier this afternoon:
Shortly after 11:30 a.m., the Deane Porter School (Rumson) received a call reporting a bomb in the confines of the school.
The facility, and neighboring Forrestdale School were evacuated by administration. Multiple police agencies responded with K-9s that swept both schools without incident. All students and personnel are safe.
The matter is currently under investigation.
