Little Paxton: Teen Admits 800 Hoax Calls

A Cambridgeshire woman who made 800 malicious calls to police in December has pleaded guilty at court today.

Kerry Ann Moate, 18, of Samuel Jones Crescent, Little Paxton appeared at Huntingdon Magistrates' today and the Court heard how she made 756 hoax 999 calls between Christmas Day and Boxing Day, and 44 hoax 999 calls between December 11 and December 13.

Officers arrested her during the early hours of Tuesday (December 27).

She was charged with two counts of persistently making use of public communication networks to cause annoyance/ inconvenience or anxiety.

Superintendent Paul Fullwood said: "The sheer volume of malicious calls was extremely disruptive to the force at a time of year that is always busy for police.

Every time someone misuses the 999 they are potentially putting others lives at risk. This is especially true when we receive a large number of nuisance calls as it impacts on how quickly other emergency calls are answered.

This behaviour is completely unacceptable and we will continue to actively pursue those who make malicious calls."

Moate will be sentenced next month
