Mono County Seek Suspect After False Emergency Report

Posted: Updated:

The Mono County Sheriff's Office are searching for a person who they say falsely reported a robbery in progress at a Shell Station on Sunday. 

According to a press release, at 9:38 p.m. Sunday, February 7th, the Mono County Sheriff's Dispatch received a radio transmission of a robbery in progress, presumed to be in Mono County. They say that the man broadcasting stated that he had one suspect at gunpoint but did not identify himself or provide Dispatch with any other information. 

The radio transmission was broadcast on a restricted access channel on the public safety radio system. The Sheriff's Office says that fearing a first responder might be in a life-threatening situation, officers were dispatched to gas stations throughout Mono County, Mammoth Lakes, and into Inyo County and Bishop. Ultimately, they found that no emergency existed. 

The Mono County Sheriff's Office has filed a crime report for False Report of an Emergency. They say that falsely reporting an emergency "takes law enforcement officers away from other enforcement activities and endangers the lives of the public and first responders." They continue to say they do not take this crime lightly and intend to pursue criminal charges. 

If you have any information please call the Mono County Sheriff's Office at (760) 932-7549 or make an anonymous report here.
