Hoboken man arrested for shoe bomb threat
Thomas Foley III arrested at Newark Airport for “Shoe Bomb Threat”
The Asbury Park Press reported today that two men were arrested at Newark Airport on allegations of making “Shoe Bomb” threats. One of them was from Hoboken: Thomas Foley, III.
My guess is that they were in no way serious – but were “joking” about the frustrating and ridiculous “security” at our airports. As a result, they got their liberties temporarily taken away. Oh well!
“Authorities say an Israeli citizen and a northern New Jersey man made false bomb threats during separate incidents at Newark Liberty International airport. The Star-Ledger of Newark reports the first incident occurred just before 10 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say 44-year-old Evan Hess of Tel Aviv became angry upon learning there were no available seats on his connecting flight, even though his checked bag was loaded onto the plane. He then allegedly claimed his bag had a bomb in it.
Hess left the area before police arrived, but was soon found in another terminal and arrested.
In the other incident Sunday, 35-year-old Thomas Foley III of Hoboken allegedly stated at a checkpoint that he had a bomb in his shoe.
Both men were charged with making a false public alarm.”
Maybe a little too much Hot Sauce on St. Patrick’s Day?
