Prank telephone calls landed one man in jail Monday and possible charges of false reporting of explosives, impersonating an officer and felony menacing against the man and his 14-year-old stepbrother.

According to Colorado Springs police, the pair made about 114 prank telephone calls from 6:49 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. In the calls, the pair identified themselves as police officers and told residents to evacuate because of explosive devices outside their residence, police said.

One person called by the pair got their telephone number which was traced. The 14-year-old was located at a local high school and taken into custody. The second suspect, Ty Graefox Chavez, was arrested at his home at 505 Swope Ave.
