Police investigating hoax phone calls

Over the course of the afternoon on January 30, several businesses in the Dartmouth area received phone calls from a male identifying himself as a firefighter. The male continues to instruct the employee of the business to trigger the fire alarm as a routine test to their system. This is a hoax that causes undue stress to emergency services and is a crime. After consultation with Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency, it has been verified that this is not a practice they employ. Police are now investigating and request that anyone with information in relation to these calls contact police at (902) 490-5016.  Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip – Tip 202 + your message to 274637.
