Investigators have made an arrest after tracking down the owner of a cell phone they say was used to tell authorities of a phony bomb threat against Ocean County Mall last week.

The May 30 threat, called in at 7:42 p.m., was separate from an earlier threat that shut down the mall May 27. That threat is still being investigated, authorities said.

Showander Descarte, 24, of Manchester, has been charged with calling in the phony threat on May 30.  She remains held in the Ocean County Jail on $10,000 bail.


In the threat, a cell phone linked to Descarte was used to dial police from the mall and state, “there’s a bomb,” Toms River Police spokesman Ralph Stocco said. The caller then hung up the phone.

Detective Dave Brubaker of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Technology Crimes Unit went to the mall to assist with the identification of the caller, Stocco said. Brubaker was able to trace the call to a specific cellular phone, and investigators ultimately found a cellular phone that matched the serial number of the phone used to make the bomb threat inside Descarte’s home during the search.

A court authorized search warrant was issued for the residence Tuesday and she was taken into custody without incident, according to Ralph Stocco, spokesman for the Toms River Police Department.

Descarte faces a charge of creating a false public alarm and terroristic threats.

    Well, stupid people have to learn everything the hard way. Punishment should be that she’s blacklisted from every cellphone provider…. pun intended.

    Blacks are 13 percent of America….the perception that they’re 50 percent is all propaganda. Why do we turn our sovereignty and culture over to them is beyond me.

      Of course you have to start with your white supremacist race war bullshit. Never fails.

      *picks up jaw* I can’t even begin to address what’s wrong with this comment. For one, it has nothing to do with the posted article, and for two, you should really keep inflammatory racist commentary to yourself. I happen to be white and I find the ignorance so KKK.

      • JW

        Everything this troll says is essentially the same diatribe against blacks. He’s little more than a massive joke.

      • Frank Rizzo

        ” looks him in the eye” tell me what that I have said is untrue.

      • SB

        I’m a she, not that it matters. If I thought your comments were true, I wouldn’t have said what I did above. I completely disagree. Nobody is going to put stock in anything you have to say if you keep spewing such ridiculous and hateful comments, but maybe your point isn’t to be listened to but to inflame others. IDK.
