Two Chandler businesses, the Hampton Inn at 1231 S. Spectrum Blvd. and McDonald’s at 1060 E. Pecos Road, are victims of false reporting.

An unidentified caller convinced employees of the two establishments to activate fire safety mechanisms such as the sprinkler and fire suppression equipment, resulting in property damage. The caller then informed the two victims the phone call had been a prank.

The Chandler Police Department recommends verifying the identity of callers and potential damage caused by emergency action before following the advised actions of a stranger.
