Teen arrested for fake CT hostage call
GREENWICH - Greenwich police say a teen in Canada has been arrested for making several fake 911 hostage calls, including one in Greenwich last month.
Investigators say the suspect is a minor and has been charged in connection to at least eight incidents across North America.
In each case, officials say the teen reported a fake hostage situation and shooting. SWAT teams were called out.
Police say these fake calls tie up important resources that are needed in case of a real emergency.
