HACKENSACK, N.J. -- A private building custodian from Hackensack called no fewer than 19 municipal police departments threatening to "murder" officers, said authorities who arrested him.

Angel Sariol, 45, was being held in the Bergen County Jail, charged with making terroristic threats and causing a false public alarm.

The calls were made this past Monday through Wednesday, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.

"During many of these calls, the unknown caller stated that police officers from those towns would be murdered," Calo said, adding that Sariol "used technology to disguise his calling line identity and placed the phone calls."

Those receiving calls, the prosecutor said, were:

• Wood-Ridge Police Department

• Hasbrouck Heights Police Department

• Paramus Police Department

• Park Ridge Police Department

• Wyckoff Police Department

• Elmwood Park Police Department

• Maywood Police Department

• Rochelle Park Police Department

• Waldwick Police Department

• Ho-Ho-Kus Police Department

• Saddle River Police Department

• Harrington Park Police Department

• Woodcliff Lake Police Department

• Hackensack Police Department

• Oradell Police Department

• Demarest Police Department

• Saddle Brook Police Department

• River Edge Police Department

• Weehawken Police Department (Hudson County)

Calo also thanked police in Rochelle Park, Hackensack and Hasbrouck Heights, as well as Union City police and the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, for their assistance.
