Bored woman makes bogus 911 calls in Slidell, police say
Times Picayune ^ | March 11, 2009

Boredom prompted a 20-year-old Slidell woman Tuesday to place two bogus 911 calls, one about a burglary and another about a house fire, authorities said Wednesday.

Ashley K. Snipes, of 504 Maine Ave., was arrested Tuesday afternoon and booked with falsely reporting a fire and falsely reporting a crime.

Slidell Police received a call at 11:29 from a woman who reported that her home in the 500 block of Maine Avenue was being burglarized, department spokesman Capt. Kevin Foltz said. Officers went to the home, but the homeowner said that everything was fine and that he had not called police, Foltz said.

Officers tried to contact the 911 caller but got a recording that said the phone number was no longer in service.

At 1:01 p.m. police received another 911 call from the same cell phone number. This time, the woman reported that a house at 6th and Maine streets was on fire, Foltz said. Officers and firefighters responded, but found no fire.

Officers spotted Snipes in her yard and asked if she knew anything about the 911 calls. Snipes initially denied making the calls, and then admitted to that she had made both calls because she was bored, Foltz said.

Officers called 911 from Snipes' cell phone and the number matched the number from which the two false calls were made, Foltz said. As a safety feature, out-of-service cell phones can still be used to call 911, he said.

Snipes also was booked on two outstanding warrants for probation violations.

If you have two outstanding warrants for probation violations why would you make prank calls to 911?

Something I never thought about is criminals could use out of service,stolen or track cell phones to create havoc while they commit a crime.

Is she guilty? I'll let you all be the judge.

If they ran out of McNuggets I believe McDonalds would be calling 911. She looks like she could raise a fuss too say the least.

During the Mardi Gras parade season we have a Moon Pie parade here in Slidell. One year my kid's got over 300 Moon Pies. I think she was one of them people who were picking the crushed ones off the street when the parade was over.

By snipe hunt are you referring to the police and fire fighters? If so at least they caught the snipe this time.

Oh what a fool I am. When I read Snipes Hunt I immediately thought of a “snipe hunt.” I forgot Ashley's last name was Snipes.

I have to reply on this.

Yes, Guilty and stupid and a product of the last 40 years of dis-education and socialism.

I was in NO on business lately. NO is a product of equal opportunity. I can’t understand for the life of me why anyone would consider it attractive for anything let alone a place for conventions. It is squalid, dirty and rundown. The windows in the airport, for example, have not seen soap and water in what looks to be years. The bathrooms were filthy, service is shoddy etc. And this was not even down in the wards it was out by the airport. NO is not charming to me. You can have it if you want it.

I was born and raised in N.O. and now live in the ‘burbs. I don’t think there is anything attractive about my home town. Whenever I travel to other towns or states, I have yet to see one as dirty and rundown as N.O. And I’m not just talking about post-Katrina. It was like this before Katrina.

Slidell may be close to New Orleans but we are a world away. In New Orleans they would not have been so prompt in responding to the calls and they probably would not have bothered to question anyone in the vicinity when they realized it was a false alarm. They would have just forgot about it and not responded to calls from that cell phone number anymore. Slidell is a nice little town, Bobby Jindal used to be our Congressional representative. Our Mayor is a retired Colonel in the Army Reserves, an Eagle Scout, former DEA agent and served as Police Chief in Slidell for 12 years. We are not New Orleans.

If your biggest complaint is about dirty windows at the airport, you probably need to get a life.

I think you miss the point...the place is filthy. Not just dirty but greasy filthy. It is in the hands of people who don’t care what it looks like and are not inclined to do their jobs.

Yes, Slidell is different. Much agreed.

Lafayette is similarly not too bad.

Yes. Since her last name is Snipes...she was sending them on “Snipes hunts”.

You said — “Is she guilty? I’ll let you all be the judge.”

Well, definitely guilty of being whooped with an ugly stick.... :-)

I still love Royal St., but they can keep Bourbon St.
