The Independence Police Department would like to alert the community about a male who has been making phone threats over the last few days. An unknown male has been calling residence, businesses, and the Independence Police Department making threats of bodily harm to the individuals that answer. The phone calls are originated from two phone numbers (661) 748-82XX and (661) 748-02XX with the name SKYPE showing on caller ID. The male has not identified himself, but will usually give the address associated to the phone number he has called followed by the threat of bodily harm. To our knowledge no actions have taken place from threats as the 661 area code is located in California.
If anyone is contacted by this male and would like file a report please contact the Independence Police Department at (816) 325-7300 or your local Police Department, if you’re outside of the City of Independence, MO.
