Call was a hoax: Oswego police respond to separate false reports

Purported incidents involving weapons fail to check out after officers investigate

Oswego police responded to two, separate incidents that proved to be unfounded over the past three days.

In press statements, police reported officers responded to a third party report of a person breaking into a home with a weapon at 2:34 a.m. June 17 in the 600 block of Charolotte Drive, west of Douglas Road on the village’s east side.

Officers investigated and determined the report to be false, police said.

In another statement, police said on June 15 officers responded to a report of shots fired at 2:15 a.m. at a residence in the 400 block of Burr Oak Drive south of Mill Road on the village’s west side.

Officers investigated and determined no shots had been fired and the 911 call that was made to the KenCom Dispatch Center reporting the incident was a hoax.
