Bomb Threat At Wells Fargo Bank Unfounded, Police Say

Bank on Route 9 South reopened at 10:30 a.m.

The Wells Fargo Bank on Route 9 South is open for business, after a bomb scare earlier this morning, Detective Sgt. James J. Smith said.

Staff members who arrived at the bank around 7:30 this morning found a message written in black magic marker on the back door that a bomb was in the building, he said.

Officers from the Berkeley Township Police Department, Ocean County Prosecutor's Office, Ocean County Sheriff's Office and the FBI responded, he said.

After a three-hour search, authorities concluded there was "obviously" no bomb in the building and the bank was opened for business, Smith said.

Anyone with any information about the incident should call the police department at 732-341-6600 and ask for Smith or Detective Joseph Santoro.

that explains why the BTPD in the parking lot surrounding the bank and the BTFD in "standby mode" in the shoprite plaza across the street...saw it on my way home from work this morning and wondered what was up.....

Well, I somehow don't think they'll advertise that there's a bomb inside. However, if you want to keep the police occupied while you are busy doing something else illegal, that is one way to be sure you know where the police will be.....at the bank investigating the bomb threat! clever.....
