Bomb Threat Found on Wall at Gloucester Township NJ Middle School

Gloucester Township NJ Bomb ThreatPolice in Gloucester Township NJ are investigating a frightening incident involving a bomb threat at a local middle school.

According to law enforcement, authorities became aware of a bomb threat that was written on the wall of a bathroom at Ann Mullen Middle School in Gloucester Township, New Jersey. The middle school is located on Sicklerville Road.

School employees noticed the bomb threat and immediately dialed 911, notifying local police. A Gloucester Township police school resource then made the decision to evacuate the school building.

Since the weather conditions were poor – it was raining at the time – students were transported via bus to Timber Creek High School, a school that located approximately two miles from the middle school.

While the children were bussed from the school, police investigated the bomb threat. Bomb-sniffing dogs with the Camden County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit checked the inside of the building, as well as the exterior. They were assisted by Gloucester Township emergency services personnel.

Police did not come across any hazardous devices inside the school. Thankfully, no one was hurt during the evacuation.

If law enforcement can eventually determine who wrote the bomb threat on the bathroom wall, that person could face severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-3, a person who threatens to commit any crime of violence with the purpose to terrorize or to cause evacuation of a building can be charged with terroristic threats. Under New Jersey law, terroristic threats is typically classified as a third degree felony and carries a penalty of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.
