Trinity man charged with making fake 911 calls

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Decatur Police arrested a man charged with making numerous fake 911 calls.

Police said on July 18, they responded to a call that someone was making meth in Trinity. When they arrived, they determined the call was a fake.

On August 27, police received a call that someone was breaking into vehicles on John Johnson Road. Again, the call proved to be false. The same night, dispatchers received a call of someone breaking into cars at a trailer in the Heritage Estates park. This call too was proven false.

On August 30, dispatchers received a call of a robbery at a Highway 20 MAPCO. When they arrived, the call was also proven false.

Police determined all four calls were made from the same cell phone. The caller was identified as 25-year-old Darrell Craig Brown.

Brown was questioned and admitted to making the calls. Brown said he made the calls to locations of people he had been arguing with.

On October 15, a warrant was issued and Brown was arrested. He was charged with four counts of false reporting to law enforcement.
