Kenora OPP responded to a false alarm at the Bannister Centre. Detachment Commander Jeff Duggan explained what happened.
"At 6:02 a.m. this morning, our provincal communications centre recieved a call from a female stating that there was a barricaded person in the Bannister Centre. The OPP responded. We take these calls very seriously, so all available units responded," he said.
Duggan add after an investigation, and search of the building, the call was determined to be a hoax.
One female is in custody but no charges have been laid.
