Woman Charged After Making Fake Emergency Call

Police have arrested and charged a man at Aberdare on outstanding warrants after an unusual turn of events yesterday morning.

Officers had surrounded a Northcote Street home after then man was spotted entering when they received a triple zero call from a woman who stated that there’d been a stabbing in Cessnock.

However the call was traced back to the home they’d already surrounded and officers forced their way in.

The 27-year-old man was charged was a series of driving and theft offences and will front court today.

A 33-year-old woman was charged with making a fake call to emergency services and possessing a prohibited drug.

She’ll be facing court later this month.

A 26-year-old man inside the home was also arrested but was later released without charge.
