CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — A Collingswood, NJ man is facing charges in connection with a series of bomb threats phoned in this morning to several locations in Camden.
Among the facilities targeted by the bogus threats were Camden City Hall, the county prosecutor’s office, Camden High School, and a church.
“There is no evidence there were any explosives anywhere in the city, but we were able to track the phone number those calls came from,” says Jason Laughlin, a spokesman for the county prosecutor’s office.
Those calls were traced to a cell phone owned by 25-year-old Alon Adams. He is now facing a half-dozen counts of creating a false alarm, which could land him in prison.
Laughlin would only say that Adams has had “previous contact” with law enforcement.
