  • Police Determine Telephoned Ransom Demand To Be Scam

    What initially sounded like a dire incident last Friday afternoon turned out to be a scam, in which an unknown telephone caller sought to persuade the person called that one of the person’s relatives was being held hostage at gunpoint after an accident, and then demanded ransom from the person receiving the call.

    Police Detective Lieutenant Richard Robinson said that police received a report on the matter from the Stop & Shop supermarket at Sand Hill Plaza at 228 South Main Street on Friday, March 7.
