COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Senator Chuck Schumer was in Colonie Monday touting new legislation to put “swatters” in their place.
In March, a man called officials to 5 Jodiro Ln. claiming he had a bomb, guns, and was holding his mother hostage. But the call was a hoax and more than 40 officers responded, including a SWAT team. They evacuated residents for an hour and a half during the incident.
