RYE - Police are calling it a "false report" after responding in full force to the The Abenaqui Country Club on Tuesday, after someone claimed to have hostages. Approximately 100 people were evacuated.
AT 3:23 p.m., a call came into the Rockingham Sheriff's Department. The caller said he or she was inside the club and that someone attending a conference had been stabbed and two people were tied up. The person also claimed there was some type of explosive device on scene.
At the time, the Abenaqui Ballroom was packed with people attending a conference for the New England Club Manager Association.
Everyone was evacuated from the club while police from Rye, Greenland, New Castle and Hampton, along with New Hampshire State Police, responded and searched the building. They found nothing.
A dog specializing in explosives was later brought in to search the building. Tuesday night police were tracking the call to determine who placed it. If found, the caller could face felony charges for making a false report.
Police Chief Kevin Walsh said it was the first time the town had used its new Seacoast Incident Command System. He said the response by police and emergency personnel was timely and efficient.
