Hoax call leads police to swarm home in Peters

A hoax led police officers to surround a Peters home on Wednesday.

A woman who called 911 indicated a person was shot in a home along Justabout Road, said Peters police Chief Harry Fruecht. Officers from Peters, Cecil and state police surrounded the house.

Soon after, the homeowner arrived and told police an estranged female relative left him a voice mail indicating she planned to place a phony call. Officers searched the home and found it undisturbed.

Officers were preparing a warrant for the woman, whom Fruecht would not identify. He would not say what charges she would face.
