01.26.2017 - Clown Threat Arrest
On October 3rd, 2016 at approximately 6:41 p.m. the Linden Police Department was alerted to a suspicious posting on Instagram. The posting featured one photo of a clown sitting on a swing with the caption "I’m taking and killing teachers and kids just like I did this morning September 30 following that girl." A three month investigation, led by Linden Juvenile Det. Keith Milos, concluded this morning when a 14-year-old boy was arrested for making the post. Complaints for 3rd-degree terroristic threats and creating false public alarm were signed against the juvenile, whose name is not being released because of his age. He was released to parents pending an appearance in juvenile court.
