Two calls involved a false school threat and one, a fake bomb threat, Hillsborough deputies said.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – A Tampa man was arrested after he made multiple calls to 911 to report crimes that never happened, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Domerell Issac Lott, 18, of Tampa, was charged with three counts of Misuse of 911 more than $100.00, two counts each of False Report of Use of Firearm in a Violent Manner and Disrupting a School Function, and one count of False Report of a Bomb.
Deputies were called Tuesday (April 2) night to Boston Market, 1401 W Brandon Blvd., for a report of a bomb threat. The threat was determined to be unfounded.
About 2 p.m. Wednesday (April 3), deputies said a 9-1-1 call was made from an individual claiming he was at Bloomingdale High School and was going to start shooting people. Deputies immediately responded, the school was place on lockdown, and deputies searched the school. The individual was not found and the threat was determined to be unfounded.
Detectives said they determined the same phone number was used to call 911 in both the Boston Market incident and the Bloomingdale High School incident.
About 12:40 p.m. Thursday (April 4), another 9-1-1 call was made. The caller told dispatch he saw a black man carrying a long gun, climb the fence to Clair-Mel Elementary School. The school was placed on lockdown, and deputies said they found a black Nissan Sentra parked across the street. Lott was in the car. Deputies said they found the cell phone used to make the calls.
The investigation is continuing.
