A Runnemede man is facing charges for allegedly calling in a bomb threat that caused major disruptions over the summer at the Camden County Board of Social Services.
George Myers is accused of making the Aug. 3 bomb threat by phone, the Camden County Sheriff's Department said Thursday. He is facing a false public alarm charge.
The threat led to a total evacuation of the building at 600 Market Street in Camden, leaving the board unable to see clients, which created a delay in case management and benefit processing, officials said.
Authorities didn't disclose any motive for the threat.
"Bottom line here is if you are thoughtless enough to make a threat, rest assured we will track you down and arrest you," Sheriff Gilbert "Whip" Wilson said in a statement.
