NEWARK – NJ TRANSIT police arrested a Brooklyn man Thursday morning for making telephone threats against the transit system.

Daniel Bodner, 47, of Brooklyn, NY, was arrested by NJ TRANSIT detectives in Newark and charged with making terroristic threats, among other charges. He is being held at the Essex County Jail. Bail was set at $100,000.

Bodner is alleged to have placed several threatening telephone calls to NJ TRANSIT Police and Long Branch Police on July 7 and 8 from his cellular telephone. The calls prompted extensive police searches of trains and stations on the North Jersey Coast Line.

“We take every threat seriously and investigate each one to the fullest extent,” said NJ TRANSIT Police Chief Joseph C. Bober. “In addition to crediting NJ TRANSIT detectives for their fine police work, I would like to personally thank the U.S. Marshals Service for their assistance in this investigation.”

NJ TRANSIT Detectives Sgt. Iandoli, L. Hudson and T. Brooks were credited with making the arrest.
