MIDDLETOWN (CBS Connecticut) — State police looking for an imposter who has been hijacking the airwaves of the emergency dispatch system in northwestern Connecticut say they have uncovered new bogus police and fire radio calls.

In these, the imposter identifies himself as from Goshen, Sharon or Sheffield –  in one case as Sheffield Engine One, and in another as Sheffield Car One.  The calls have been made at various times in December and January.

Police say they hope members of the public can help them crack the case,  since the imposter’s cakks result in changes in assignment of real personnel and equipment, and put the public safety at risk.

(Note:  “LCD” in the podcasts below is Litchfield County Dispatch.)

Police say anyone who might recognize the voice, or who has information about the case for detectuives, should call  (860) 234-1529 or 860-626-1821 or Email: holly.wrightson@ct.gov
