CRANFORD — Two juveniles were charged Friday in connection with a making a vague threat at Cranford High School that led to a police investigation, said Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow.
The juveniles, ages 14 and 15, were charged with creating a false public alarm, said Romankow. A written message that mentioned violence against others had been found written on a classroom table.
The school district notified police who launched an investigation. The juveniles responsible were identified earlier last week and charged on April 9.
“We have a zero tolerance policy for this type of threat,” said Romankow. “Every student, teacher and administrator should feel that school is a safe place to be. We take all these threats seriously and will ensure that those responsible face the appropriate legal action.”
The investigation was conducted by the Cranford Police Department, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office and the Union County Sheriff’s Department.
