Daytona Beach SWAT standoff result of a hoax

Posted: Updated:

Daytona Beach police and members of their SWAT team spent two hours on Monday surrounding a home on Grandview and Harvey avenues. 

Someone called 911 and said there was a woman dead inside an apartment.  Police attempted to make contact with the people who live in the 8-unit complex. Eventually, they realized, no one was hurt inside the home and that the call was a hoax.

Officers will actively search for the person who placed the call which cost the department thousands of dollars, Police Chief Mike Chitwood said.
