Strange Calls from an Unknown Woman, Terrified Blanchard Middle School

The Blanchard Middle School experienced a terrifying day because of receiving several unexpected calls from a strange individual few days ago. The police are still investigating this matter to find who is behind the unwanted calls.

From the news of the kfor.com, the Blanchard Police Department are currently investigating the situation in an effort to determine the person who made the suspicious calls that bothered the Blanchard Middle School for at least couple of days. An unknown woman called the school repeatedly, but they have no idea about her real identity.

The caller asked a female middle school student to consider taking the bus home. The police already informed the parents about this particular unexpected incident involving an unknown caller.

“It was suspicious, and we take all suspicious or anonymous phone calls seriously,” said Dr. Jim Beckham. “We have to. We keep our kids safe, and we expect parents to expect us to keep them safe,” he added.

Beckham is Blanchard Schools Superintendent who handles the ongoing investigation and believes that the students are safe because of following the exact protocol that the school is implementing.

According to him, they train their people better and one of their main rules is not to provide any information from unknown callers. Regardless if a caller is identifying the recipient as a relative or a close friend, they do not provide important data.

The news added that the Blanchard Police Department and the district are already coordinating about the incident, although they are still clueless about the caller. They are now trying to trace the call by communicating with the phone company to help them identify or find the woman who made the strange calls.

In line with this, Blanchard Police Chief officer Stacey White stated that they are cautiously monitoring the route of the bus when picking and dropping the students back home and they feel that there is nothing to worry about the situation.

“They were just very specific about the name of the child, but we have other information we are building, our basic goal right now is to find out what the motivation is, was this an intentional crime being committed,” said White about the situation.

White likewise added that the parents must not panic about it, although it is very important to check their students to assure their security.

Nazareth Borough Council Asks Police State Not To Utilize Their Phone Number

Nazareth Borough(April 09, 2015) The Nazareth Borough Council has asked the Nazareth Borough Police Station not to utilize the phone number of the department for their fundraising schemes.

According to Mayor Carl Strye Jr., the officials of the union received a letter from the council, stating that they must not use the phone number of the department while they have their campaign to raise funds. Meanwhile, the fire department of the Nazareth Borough had the same fundraising scheme, but they never gained advantage of using the phone number of the department.

The police union has been told to not use the phone number of the police association, according to the mayor. This event has stemmed when one resident named Becky Butz persisted to raise a concern with regards to the fundraising letter to the union in February, which tells the donors to make a call to the department’s phone number to make sure that the fundraising is legit.

Previously, Butz told that callers have dialed the police department’s phone number, but they are redirected to the Communications Center of the police department. Likewise, the emergency dispatchers have more things to do than to answer and verify the police union calls. Strye also stated that the concern was made clear to the police union. On the other hand, Councilman Brian Regn said that the issue must not happen again.

In the said letter dated February 21, the union asked the business owners and the residents of the Nazareth Borough to give financial donations from the range of $10 to $100. In one part of the letter, it reads, “It was a great pleasure that the Nazareth Borough Police station is doing another fundraising activity.” The letter continued, stating that 100% of the donations will be allotted to the Nazareth Borough Police Station.

The controversial letter was signed under the name of Frederick Lahovski, which happens to be the president of the Nazareth Police Association. Mr. Lahovski was not immediately available to make a comment regarding the matter. The Council president, Dan Chiavaroli, stated that the union can send a letter at any time they wanted, and it will depend on the business owners and the residents whether they want to donate or not.

In addition, the Council has taken the issue along with the telephone number of the police station. According to Butz, she wrote a letter to the union seeking an explanation where the funds will go to, but she never obtained any reply from the union.

They are trying to get a hold of the information of the people using the number of the auto shop.

Howland added that he is not sure of how he is going to talk to the victims of the fraudulent phone calls. He said that he just said sorry and leave it be because he does not know anything about it and he cannot do a thing.

Meanwhile, a tech expert from the group called Geek Group, said that using local number can make any scam calls legit.
