BOSTON - Coast Guard crews are looking to the public today to help determine the source of several probable hoax distress calls that have been received in Maine and Massachusetts over the past couple weeks. Hoax distress calls placed to the Coast Guard are classified as a felony punishable by up to six years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
Anyone with information that can help authorities identify the caller is encouraged to call Sector Northern New England's command center at 207-767-0303. (U.S. Coast Guard Audio)
