The caller, who had a British accent, didn’t provide a timetable for his supposed threat to fire on headquarters with an AR-15, the sources told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.

The family whose number he used is Hispanic, they said.

Bergen County Police Department investigators joined their Garfield counterparts in tracing the source.
