‘Swatting’ prank sends lots of police to Saratoga County home
A small army of police went rushing to a home on North Milton Road in Milton Thursday night after someone reported there was a serious threat there.
However, it turns out it was an incident of “swatting,” which is another word for a prank or hoax that requires a huge police or SWAT-type presence.
Police say no one was injured and there is no threat to the community. They are now attempting to trace the source of the false report.
