Three Pennsauken High School students were charged yesterday with making false public alarms after phoning in a bomb threat to the school, authorities said.
Cinnaminson police received a 911 call shortly after 8:30 a.m. saying two bombs had been planted at the 1,700-student school. They immediately traced the call to a pay phone outside a Wal-Mart store on Route 130, near where Cinnaminson Lt. Robert Martens happened to be patrolling.
Martens spotted a Ford F-150 pickup truck leaving the scene with three students in the cab. When he pulled up behind them in his marked cruiser, all three lit up cigarettes, said Sgt. William K. Covert.
