Police: Selden hostage situation a hoax
Suffolk police say a hostage situation in Selden turned out to be a hoax yesterday.
Police brought in an armored truck and SWAT teams to surround an Abinet Court house after a 911 caller claimed he was being held at gunpoint in the basement of the home.
After an investigation, authorities say the call was deemed phony.
Police say the house is a sober house and an investigation into who made the phone call is ongoing.
