Christopher M. Young of Freehold Borough was arrested by detectives of the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office yesterday and charged with making a false public alarm of a critical infrastructure. Young texted a bomb threat to the agency’s 9-1-1 Telecommunications Center in Freehold on December 8, 2016 from a pre-paid cell phone.
A former employee of the 9-1-1 center who was fired in October of 2016 during his probationary employment, Young’s text claimed there was a bomb in the center.
“These types of threats are taken very seriously and will not be tolerated to ensure the safety of the people who live and work in Monmouth County,” said Sheriff Shaun Golden. “I commend our detectives from the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office for fully responding to this false public alarm and actively working to find out who was responsible for this disruptive and potentially dangerous threat.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office | Tags: Christopher M.
