West Fargo Teen in Trouble for Making Fake 911 Calls

Posted: Updated:

A West Fargo teenager is in some trouble after making two fake 911 calls on Wednesday afternoon. Approximately 2:25 p.m. the West Fargo Police and Fire Department responded to a 911 report of a fire at the Lodoen Community Center. The emergency personnel did not find a fire.

While responders were still on scene, a second 911 report of a fire at the same location was made. Both calls were found to have been placed from businesses in West Fargo.

Officers were able to get a description of the vehicle left leaving those businesses and a partial license plate number. Using that information they located an 18-year-old male. He was questioned and said the calls were made with the hope that dance line practice at the Center would be canceled.

The teen said he knew some of the dance line members. His name is not being released because he has not been charged yet, but the report has been forwarded to the Cass County States Attorney's Office for consideration of charges. Assistant Police Chief Mike Reitan says the teen could face a charge of harassment and improper use of 911.
