A man who warned the police that he was going to Busan to kill someone has been arrested. The man, who was in a state of intoxication, was found to have accidentally made a false report.
Reporter Jo Ik-shin reports.
On the night of the 25th of last month, a phone call was made to the police.
It was a murder notice that said, “I’m going to Busan to kill a person스포츠토토.”
The police were immediately dispatched to Busan Station to prepare for any unforeseen incidents.

The only clue was the name and voice of the reporter.
It was impossible to track the location because it was a mobile phone without a SIM card.

First, the police obtained a photo of suspect A through the report history.
It took 2 hours and 20 minutes for dozens of people, including the railroad police and station staff, to check and search.
The police finally found Mr. A in the crowd.
It was almost midnight for her.
At first, Mr. A denied her report, saying, “What are you talking about?”
However, when the police questioned him again, Mr. A admitted to the crime.
Mr. A, who drank 6 bottles of soju at the time, stated that he made a false report because of a bad memory he had at a restaurant in Busan.
It was confirmed that Mr. A had already made false reports several times before that.
The police arrested Mr. A on charges of obstruction of justice and handed the case over to the prosecution.
