Mt. Vernon Man Facing Felony for Making False Claims to 911 Dispatcher

MT. VERNON (WRXX) – Mt. Vernon police responded Tuesday night to multiple 911 calls from a residence on Conger Ave. where a man reportedly made false claims to the dispatcher.

According to Mt. Vernon Police Chief Trent Page, 43-year-old Damien Reed was arrested on four counts making a false report of an offense.

Chief Page said Reed told the 911 dispatcher over four separate calls that there were bodies in the home, that he had killed those people, that he would kill anyone responding to the residence and that he would kill police officers.

When it became clear the reports were false, Reed was taken into custody and transported to the Jefferson County Jail.

He was formally charged in Jefferson County Court Wednesday with Class 4 felony making a false complaint with 911. Bond in the case remains to be set.
