The capital city’s police force was flooded with 911 calls over the weekend but none of them were emergencies.

On Sunday, Charlottetown Police Services responded to 19 abandoned 911 calls from payphones in the downtown area throughout the early morning hours.

Police identified and arrested the young person responsible. That young person has been charged with public mischief and will appear in Youth Court at a later date.
