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.
