The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Robert Anzilotti, and members of the Hackensack Police Department under the direction of Officer-in-Charge Francesco Aquila.

On Monday, February 5, 2018, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office received information that a telephone caller using technology to anonymize his calling line identity contacted the Hackensack Police Department and made a bomb threat against the Bergen County Courthouse. Members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit and Hackensack Police Department initiated an investigation to trace the call.

As a result of the investigation, Christopher CAMARGO was charged on Friday, May 11, 2018 with one count of False Public Alarm Against Critical Infrastructure, N.J.S.A. 2C:33-3C, a 2nd degree crime, and one count of Terroristic Threats, N.J.S.A. 2C:12-3A, a 3rd degree crime. He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending an appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, NJ.

Acting Prosecutor Calo states that the charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and would like to thank the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office and the Hackensack Police Department for their assistance with this investigation.
