Arrest Made After False 911 Call

After firefighters were dispatched to a false alarm on May 10, the Winn Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Tiffany Malone, 27, of Winnfield and charged her with Improper Supervision of a Minor by a Parent (Criminal Mischief). On May 10, 911 operators received several calls of a fire at the Big Creek Baptist Church in Jordan Hill. Winn Parish Fire District #3 dispatched to the call that turned out to be false. Apparently, a juvenile was making the reports on a pre-paid cell phone that was turned off. The WPSO reminds parents to not let their children play with cell phones that have been turned off, as the phone will still contact 911.
