San Juan Co. women targets of obscene phone calls

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a recent rash of obscene phone calls, according to SanJuanJournal.com.

Six people on San Juan and Orcas islands have reported receiving sexually explicit telephone calls in the middle of the night. The male caller addresses the female victims by name, according to the web site.

The victims’ caller ID indicates that the calls are coming from a restricted or private number.

In response, the Sheriff’s Office is recommending residents sign up for a service to trace the nuisance calls.
