CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

An investigation by the Clermont County Sheriff's Office has resulted in a charge of Making False Alarms against Bobby Joe Griffin, Jr. age 21 of Batavia Township. 

An investigation by the Clermont County Sheriff's Office revealed Griffin made six false 9-1-1 calls to the Clermont County Communications Center from January 16, 2013 to August 29, 2013. 

Officers say these calls included reporting a person drowning at Eastfork Lake State Park and others were reported as structure fires. 

These false reports caused emergency services personnel to respond to scenes for which they were not needed. 

No injuries or property damage resulted from these false reports, however, expenses are estimated to be in excess of $1,000.00 as a result of the false calls.

Making False Calls is a fifth degree felony.
