911 emergency call system cracked


A Washington
man has been accused of hacking into the 911 emergency telephone system and sending armed police to unsuspecting Lake Forest family's home. SWAT teams had been told that a person had been shot by an armed suspect in the house, but found only a scared couple and their children.

Randall Ellis, a 19-year-old, apparently hacked into the Orange County 911 emergency system from his home and placed a false emergency call. Ellis is expected to appear in an Orange County courtroom Monday to face charges of computer access and fraud, false imprisonment by violence, falsely reporting a crime and assault with an assault weapon by proxy.

He selected the couple’s name and address at random and electronically transferred false information into the 911 system. Ellis has created similar events in other areas.
