A Monroe woman who pretended to be someone else on a 911 call allegedly falsely reported Wednesday that a woman was being held captive by her armed boyfriend.  The Monroe Courier reports that schools near the Royce of Trumbull apartments were placed in lockdown mode as police responded.  Police later determined that 31-year old Lauren Pires made up the report  in order to have her estranged husband arrested.  She was charged with falsely reporting an incident, breach of peace and interfering with police.  Pires is due in court on the 25th.
