Man Found Guilty On Weapons & Terroristic Threat Charges

OCEAN COUNTY – A Seaside Park man is facing a “significant amount of prison time” after being found guilty on weapons and terrorist threat charges, according to Ocean County authorities.

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer confirmed that 24-year-old Cory Cure was found guilty following a two week trial. 

The incident that led to his arrest happened back on October 28, 2016 in Seaside Heights and involved officers from that police department. 

Billhimer said Cure was arrested for creating a disturbance in public and a search of his backpack revealed two firearms, one loaded, and hollow point bullets.

During his booking at the police station, Cure threatened to kill one of the police officers.

Cure was found guilty on two counts of Second Degree Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, one count of Third Degree Terroristic Threats, and one count of Fourth Degree Unlawful Possession of Hollow Nose Bullets.

After the guilty verdict was returned by the jury, Cure pled guilty to two counts of being a Certain Person Not to Have Weapons – also crimes of the Second Degree.  

Cure was taken into custody and is currently lodged in the Ocean County Jail.  In his mugshot, he can be seen sticking his tongue out at the camera.

Sentencing is set for July 26th, 2019.

In a press release issued Thursday, Prosecutor Billhimer acknowledged the dedicated efforts and hard work of Senior Assistant Prosecutor Jamie L. Schron and Assistant Prosecutor Andrew T. Leimbach who tried the case on behalf of the State.  

The Prosecutor also extended his gratitude to Detective Taryn Schwartz of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office, the Seaside Heights Police Department, the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department Crime Scene Investigation Unit, and the Ocean County Engineering Department for their assistance and professionalism in investigating this matter and bringing Cure to justice.
