EDGEWATER, N.J. – An unemployed Cliffside Park man and a receptionist from Hawthorne were charged with calling in a bomb scare to the Target store in Edgewater, authorities said Tuesday.

Shane Turner, 33, and Nina Walsh, 32, blocked caller ID to place the call last June 22, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

The caller said a bomb in the bathroom was set to go off at 7 p.m. that night, police told Daily Voice at the time.

The Bergen County Sheriff's Bomb Squad and K-9 Unit searched the building and nothing was found, they said.

Turner and Walsh surrendered to Grewal’s detectives who were investigating the case on Monday, the prosecutor said.

They were charged with making terroristic threats and causing a false public alarm and released pending a July 5 appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, he said.
