04/20/2012: "Sexually Explicit Calls Can Be Traced"


ig_S_Sex_Calls-01 (31k image)


In the past several days the Sheriff’s Office has taken six separate calls from San Juan and Orcas Island residents reporting sexually explicit telephone calls in the middle of the night.

The male caller addresses the female victims by name, and victim’s caller ID indicates that the calls are coming from a restricted or private number.


In order to help identify and apprehend this individual, Century Link offers *57 service. Immediately after hanging up from an obscene, threatening or alarming call, dial *57 and follow the directions given over the phone.

After activating the call trace request with the phone company, call law enforcement to report the incident. A signed release is required by the phone company to release information about the traced call to law enforcement.

Phone customers may also have anonymous calls blocked from their phones. Or, you can simply interrupt the caller and say "Oh, she no longer lives here, but here is her new number.." and then give him the phone number of the Sheriff's office. Just a suggestion.
