A Bethlehem Township man wanted in Warren County, N.J., for allegedly phoning in a bomb threat to a ShopRite supermarket on May 4 was taken into custody Thursday night.
Bryan Keith Zink, 43, of 5200 Freemansburg Ave., Lot 9, allegedly called the ShopRite at 1207 Route 22 in Greenwich Township – near the intersection of Route 519 -- and said there were three bombs in the building and that the market had about an hour to get everyone out, according to court records.
Armed with a Warren County warrant, Bethlehem Township Patrolman Robert Stametz knocked on Zink’s door around 8:49pm. His girlfriend opened it and invited him inside. Stametz found Zink in a back bedroom, the records say.
The records do not indicate if Zink has any connection to the ShopRite.
Zink was arraigned late Thursday by on-duty District Judge Jackie Taschner of Palmer Township. He was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bail.
An extradition hearing was scheduled for 10am June 15 at the Northampton County Courthouse.
