(Scroll down for video) A 911 operator used her experience on the job to trick police and firefighters to break down the door of her old apartment.

28-year-old Joselene Brunot, who worked as a 911 operator at the New York Police Department, was arrested on Friday, after calling police to report a false emergency.

Brunot lied to fellow 911 operators, saying that she lived at the apartment and she left the stove turned on.

Police and firefighter were dispatched to the apartment in Brooklyn, after Brunot said that she left food cooking on the stove and she was locked out of the home.

Firefighters broke the door down, giving Brunot access to the apartment that was not hers.

Building superintendent Fulgencio Rivera, 59, said that this was the second time Brunot used law enforcement to break the door down.

The woman who lives at the apartment, said that Brunot used to be her roommate. However, she no longer lives there.

Brunot, who allegedly wanted to retrieve some items that she left behind in the apartment, was suspended from her job with the NYPD.
