Caller arrested after report of break-in at Wilbraham Inn

Sean Martin claimed man with shotgun had entered hotel room

WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Wilbraham police say that a report of a man breaking into a hotel room armed with a shotgun ended with the arrest of the caller.

According to the Wilbraham Police Department Facebook page, Sean Martin, 25, of Brimfield, allegedly called police under the name “Eric Wilson” to report a break-in at the Wilbraham Inn late Sunday night.

Police say that the caller claimed that a man had come into the hotel room armed with a shotgun. Details provided by the caller, however, were vague.

When officers got there, they allegedly found evidence that multiple people were drinking and using narcotics in the room, and that a theft of drugs is most likely what had taken place.

They also allegedly determined that Martin was the one who had called them. It turned out that he had two warrants out for his arrest, so he was taken into custody for that, along with a new charge of possession with intent to distribute a Class D substance.
