SMH: 911 Operator Arrested For Faking Emergencies To Break Into Former Apartment
A Brooklyn landlord has pressed charges against a former tenant for trying to use her job as a 911 dispatcher against him.
Joselene Brunot, who was booted from her Brooklyn sublet, thought she could finagle the system by faking emergency calls to regain entry to her former east Flatbush room. She was successful the first time, on September 13th firefighters forced the lock after she claimed she was locked out and she had left the stove on. The second time, she was not so lucky.
Here’s what the NY Daily News is reporting:
Brunot made her first faux 911 call on Sept. 13, officials said. Firefighters responded and forced the lock, building superintendent Fulgencio Rivera, 59, said.
But the dispatcher apparently didn’t get everything she needed. She called 911 again about 5 p.m. on Thursday, claiming she was locked out of the apartment and there was food was on the stove.
Six FDNY units responded, but left when the tenant Brunot rented the room from answered the door, exposing the hoax, neighbors said.
The tenant refused to comment Friday.
Cops arrested Brunot after the tenant filed a complaint against her, police said. She was given a desk appearance ticket and was expected to answer the charges in court within a few weeks, officials said.
What could she have left that was so important??
