Bomb Squad Called In After Threat Shuts Down Ocean County DMV

A bomb threat at the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission location in Manahawkin forced it to shut down on Monday afternoon, with a bomb squad called in to assist local police.

The Stafford Township Police Department said it received a report of a bomb threat, from an unknown caller, who stated that there was an explosive device at the DMV in Manahawkin.

Patrol Units immediately responded, at which time the building and surrounding businesses were evacuated as a precaution.

The Ocean County Sheriff’s Deptartment K-9 Unit and a Beach Haven Police Department K-9 Unit responded to the scene. The DMV and surrounding buildings were searched and cleared of any threat by the K-9 units.

Following the search, all businesses resumed normal operation.
