Someone in the Kent Island area has made 11 fake distress calling “Mayday Mayday” meaning vessel in distress.
The person has been making the calls since October.
The Coast Guard responded each time but didn’t find any boats in distress and say the fake calls have cost $45,000.
Making the fake calls is a felony, and the Coast Guard is offering a reward of $2,000 for any information that will identify the felon.
Anyone with information should call 410-576-2515.
