JEROME, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) A 26 year old Jerome woman has been charged with making false 911 calls after authorities say she repeatedly called 911 but wouldn’t say anything.

Olivia Baxter, is accused of calling SIRCOMM Thursday evening.

Dispatchers report that they could hear a male voice in the background but the caller remained silent.

With 911 technology they were able to track where the calls were coming from, and they dispatched deputies to the area of 480 East and 400 south.

When they arrived, they found Baxter, who was still refusing to talk.

They had dispatch call back the number again, and her pocket rang, showing dispatch’s number.

Jerome County handcuffed her and put her in the back of the patrol vehicle, and she still said nothing.
