A Massachusetts man accused of making fake emergency calls to Connecticut State Police in Litchfield was arrested on Friday.

Police said 35-year-old Adam Perrelli made several fake emergency calls to the state police barracks in Litchfield between Dec. 25, 2013 to Jan. 6, 2014.

According to investigators, the fall calls "interfered with and interrupted calls for service with both ambulance and fire department calls."

Police said the caller put first responders at risk.

After receiving multiple fake calls, state police started an investigation. Its investigation included releasing several of the calls to the media to help gather potential suspects. The release of the calls allowed police to develop several leads.

"That distribution assistance by the media led to several leads being developed by Detectives and many leads were a direct result of the public being made aware of the incident and coming forward with information," state police said in a statement Friday.

Perrelli was taken into custody by Pittsfield Police on Friday. He was treated as a Fugitive from justice for Connecticut.

Perrelli was charged with first-degree reporting a false incident, first-degree reckless endangerment, interruption of computer service, third-degree computer crime, interfering with an officer and tampering with physical evidence.

After appearing in Massachusetts court on Friday, Perrelli has waived his extradition and was taken into custody by Connecticut State Police.

Perrelli is being held on $150,000 bond and will be arraigned in Connecticut on Monday.
