Roxbury Township School District bomb threat ‘does not appear to be credible,’ police say

ROXBURY TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A non-specific and unsubstantiated bomb threat received by the Roxbury Township School District Monday “does not appear to be credible,” police said.

After a preliminary police investigation, the threat “does not appear to be credible,” police said.

However, out of an abundance of caution the Morris County Sherriff’s Office Bomb Unit was called to check the perimeter of all schools, police said.

“Both the district and the police department feel that it is safe for school and after school activities to continue at this time. If anything changes as this investigation progresses, appropriate steps will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety,” police said.

“Please expect extra police presence at the schools this week, including random K-9 sweeps by the Morris County Sheriffs Office of the exterior of the buildings both during and after school hours,” police said.

Anyone with information that could assist with the investigation should contact the Roxbury Township Police Department Detective Bureau at 973-448-2050 or 973-448-2106.
