Madison police have arrested a juvenile from Long Island who is accused of falsely reporting a violent crime in a Madison home and making it look like the call was coming from that residence.
Police there were three incidents between January 5 and January 23 in which the juvenile called Madison Police Department to report a violent crime and those calls prompted a heavy police response, including SWAT teams.
After a lengthy investigation and several search and seizure warrants for telephone and Internet records, police identified the caller as a juvenile from Long Island.
The juvenile was charged with three counts of falsely reporting an incident and three counts of harassment in the second degree. He appeared at New Haven Juvenile Court on April 1, 2014.
