Police say a woman made 48 phony 911 calls threatening suicide, asking police to shoot her and claiming that her mother was dying of a heart attack.
Forty-four year-old Caryn Sodaro of Lochbuie was arrested Friday following a four month investigation. Weld County sheriff's spokesman Shane Scofield says the woman used a prepaid cell phone that didn't have Sodaro's name attached.
With the help of the phone company, investigators were able to trace the calls to the community of Lochbuie, which sits along Interstate 76 about 18 miles north of Denver.
Sodaro was being held without bail on suspicion of attempting to influence a public official, a felony, and two misdemeanor offenses of false reporting and resisting arrest.
