The sheriff's office stated that its Bellevue officers, dispatchers, investigators and crime analysts narrowed down the possible suspects and the 911 calls stopped briefly. Then, on New Year's Day, the calls started again, police say.

Arcand was arrested on Jan. 4, and she was still incarcerated as of the afternoon of Jan. 5.

According to the sheriff's office, the false 911 occupy the time of dispatchers and officers who need to deal with true emergencies. Those calls can prevent officers from dealing with true emergencies, according to WBAY.
