Police say a man is in custody in connection to a bomb threat called in to Hamilton Township, New Jersey.

Police say there was a phoned-in “explosive threat” for the general area surrounding the Walmart on 700 Marketplace Boulevard at the Hamilton Marketplace Complex.

Police checked the Walmart and deemed it safe for customers. They then briefly shut down Route 130 in both directions. Route 130 has since been reopened.

Shortly after this, State Police conducted a felony stop at 1437 East State Street in Hamilton. Police say they took a man into custody in reference to the explosive threat. Troopers searched the man's vehicle with bomb sniffing dogs but did not find any explosives.

Police have not yet revealed the man's name.
