TICKFAW, La (FOX44) - Two people are in jail after an incident involving a false 911 call.
Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived on the scene when they received a call involving a violent act. The caller stated that an unknown male was beating her while holding her at knife point.
When the officers arrived, Kathryn Heath, the resident that lived where the call came from, stated that everything was fine, and she had not placed the 911 call. Deputies noticed she was acting nervous and reserved; they also noticed that someone was running from the back door of the house.
After some time, she told officers that the unknown male had come back and was somewhere in the residence. They found Edward Harrison in the bedroom; he was immediately cuffed, and then taken into custody after finding out he had previous warrants.
After questioning, Heath soon confessed that she falsified her 911 call. She stated that another man was with her and her boyfriend, Harrison, doing drugs. Harrison and the other subject wanted to leave, but Heath didn’t want them to.
Heath knew the other male had warrants for his arrest, so she knew that if the police were called, the subject would leave.
Heath was then arrested for the false report of a crime. Upon being searched at the jail, she also was found to have had Xanax and Oxycodone on her person.
Kathryn Heath, 23, was charged with Criminal Mischief and three counts of Possession of CDS II.
Edward Harrison, 23, was charged with Fugitive from another Jurisdiction and two FTA warrants.
