Fake emergency radio calls
WESTERN CONNECTICUT- Someone is making bogus emergency radio broadcasts to dispatch first-responders and authorities are trying to find who it is.
State Police say the man has dispatched ambulances to fake calls and even canceled fire services for real calls.
The broadcasts were made from Christmas day into the first week of January.
In one bogus call, the message was to dispatch a medic and ambulance to a certain location for an abdominal injury.
Investigators say the person is using a lost or stolen portable radio or transceiver device with the proper frequency for emergencies.
They hope a member of the public might recognize the man's voice that has been recorded for the investigation.
