Man’s bomb hoax to get brother off Burger King shift early gets him six months sentence
A British man made a hoax bomb phone call — because his brother wanted to finish work early.
Luke Brown made the 999 call (The UK equivalent of 911) claiming a bomb was due to go off in a shopping mall in six hours’ time.
Brown told police his brother was working in Burger King and “wanted to go home early.” He said his brother had asked him to make a call to police and “make something up.”
Police said the call was “astonishing” in its “stupidity,” reports the Eastern Daily Press.
They carried out a discreet sweep of the shopping mall, but soon established it was a hoax.
Brown has been sentenced to six months in a young offenders institution.
