A firefighter in New York City named Joseph Keene has admitted to placing three FAKE 911 CALLS so he could rob several FIRE STATIONS while the other firefighters were out responding.
Apparently he didn't just rob the actual stations he robbed the other FIREFIGHTERS.
The three phone calls took place in May and June. In two of the calls, Keene reported gas leaks. And in the third call, he told them a transformer was sparking. He managed to steal a total of about $1,900.
The commissioner for the city's Department of Investigation explained that ANY fake 911 call is "outrageous." Adding that, quote, "a firefighter doing it is beyond the pale of anything we have seen."
Keene is now facing felony charges for the fake 911 calls, and is also being charged with burglary and grand larceny.
