A fake call about shots being fired forced police to lock down two schools in Surrey.
“A lot of resources were expended here to come to a complaint of this nature and found to be a prank.”
Acting RCMP Inspector Keith Bramhill says a woman was alone in the house in the 14-six hundred block of 17-A Avenue when several officers arrived.
“Shocked to see the police presence outside of her house when everything was fine in her residence.”
He says investigators are now tracking down the origin of the call and if caught, the person responsible faces up to five years in prison.
“It doesn’t appear that it’s a computer-generated call like some of the others that have been reported.”
