Hoax caller caught

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A 36-YEAR-OLD Ju­bilee Pocket man was ar­rested at 9.30pm last Wed­nes­day for mak­ing hoax calls. The man made sev­eral 000 calls be­tween the hours of 6.25 and 9.30pm ask­ing for the Queens­land Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice (QFRS) to come to his ad­dress. Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion, Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Simon Wal­ter, said QFRS re­sponded to the calls twice but on each oc­ca­sion there was no emer­gency. He said when po­lice caught up with him the man was “ex­tremely vi­o­lent” and dam­aged one of the cells at the watch house. He will ap­pear in court at a later date.
