UPDATE: Authorities charged an 18-year-old mechanic from Saddle Brook with calling in bomb threats to Bergen Community College on Monday and a business in town last month -- neither of which they said ultimately were considered genuine.
ORIGINAL STORY: All three campuses of Bergen Community College were evacuated early Monday afternoon after a caller phoned in a bomb threat.
The call that came in to Paramus police around 1 p.m. didn't specify a campus, so all three -- Paramus, Hackensack and Lyndhurst -- were cleared as a precaution, authorities said.
Searches with bomb-sniffing Bergen County sheriff's K-9s were being conducted. Local police, firefighters and emergency services units responded, as well.
Some local streets were closed off, as well, and a command post was being established.
Students, staff and others were returned shortly after 3 p.m.
