WEST VALLEY CITY -- Emergency dispatchers say police officers had to go door-to-door to track down a mentally disabled woman who made 200 calls to 911 over a 10-day stretch.
Officials from the Valley Emergency Communications Center say the calls came from a disconnected cell phone in West Valley City that dispatchers could not call back.
Authorities created a grid in a neighborhood last week and walked from house to house to find the person who was making the calls. Police say the calls were made by a mentally disabled woman who had a cell phone that was disconnected but still had a battery charge.
Dispatchers warn people that disconnected cell phones are still able to make emergency calls and to remove the batteries from old phones if anyone is playing with them.
