State Police Complain of False 911s

Tarrytown police, at the request of State Police receiving multiple 911 hangups, went to investigate two Tarrytown sisters.

A pair Tarrytown sisters caused some state police annoyance when they allegedly kept dialing 911, something their father said they've been known to do for fun before.

A New York State Police Trooper from the Traffic Management Center in Hawthorne, which receives cellular 911 calls from motorists in distress, reported to Tarrytown police on Jan. 19 at 4:44 p.m. that their station had been receiving multiple 911 calls from two females who then would hang up. He said this had been happening for several hours and the calls seemed to be coming from the area of Round-a-Bend Road.

Tarrytown officers found no one at home at the address; however the homeowner when contacted said both his daughters should be home at this time.

The father said he recently cancelled both of their cell phones because they were making multiple 911 calls a few weeks ago.

Officers returned to the home to speak with the father who said he was on his way.

The father was unable to find any of three cell phones the calls were coming from. The state police said the calls had stopped since the Tarrytown PD had arrived at the home.

The father said he would monitor his daughters and make sure no more 911 calls were made.
