Brooklyn – State Senator Marty Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) has just learned from officials with the New York City Police Department, that an arrest has been made in the early Wednesday morning fake bomb scare found on the doorstep of a retired Bay Ridge resident:


“I have just been informed that an arrest has been made of an individual in the Bay Ridge bomb scare that took place Tuesday night on 68th Street. I commend the 68th Precinct, Commanding Officer Captain DiBlasio, and all the NYPD Detectives assigned to this case, for their work, in making sure that this individual is no longer roaming our streets, causing havoc and wasting police resources.


If this individual was playing a joke, it was a very bad, inappropriate and insensitive one. In this climate, we nothing that threatens the lives of our fellow neighbors, New Yorkers and Americans, can be thought of as funny. We must remain vigilant and be sure that if we see something, we say something.”
