    San Jacinto Radio Ham arrested

    SWRNN reports that radio amateur Irene Marie Levy KJ6CEY has been arrested after allegedly making threats on Police and Fire service frequencies.

    The report says:

    Authorities arrested a 29-year-old San Jacinto woman who investigators said interrupted police and fire radio communications and made threats over the air during a two-day period, said Hemet police Lt. Mark Richards in a news release.

    Irene Marie Levy was taken into custody early Monday at her mobile home in the 900 block of South Grand Avenue, Richards said. Levy was booked at the Hemet Police Department Jail on suspicion of making terrorist threats; false report of a bomb threat; and maliciously interrupting, disrupting, impeding, or interfering with the transmission of a public safety radio frequency.

    Hemet Police investigators seized 11 radios, seven radio frequency scanners, radio frequency lists, computer equipment, and other miscellaneous radio equipment from Levy’s home. Police also seized Levy’s Ham radio technician’s license issued to her by the FCC in September of 2009, Richards said.

    Idiocy at work....

    Right down the street...but I find that every organization has its quota of nuts. She should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, maybe share a cell with Jack Gerritsen!

    According to her QRZ profile, she claims to really be a "CB'er at heart". Too bad because she sure gives those who may be good people a bad name. She certainly doesn't deserve to have a ham license!

    But, all is not lost, she does serve a very useful purpose - she can always be a bad example.... :eek:

    If she was using modified amateur gear opened to use on public service frequencies, she will most likely lose her license and her husband will be under some intense scrutiny as well.... :(

    And to think, not even one year into her first ham license and she really blew it.... Not too swift to be transmitting on police frequencies while the cops are sitting outside your door but, hey, they'll never catch me! Right. I hope a judge gives her plenty of jail time! A loss of freedom really makes one a believer - especially if her family needs both incomes to get by. I hope her young son doesn't decide to take after his mom....

    It's people like this that give all the rest of our hobby a bad name. But, it takes all kinds to make up a world. I hope she learned a lesson from it all.

    Apparently you dont have to take a urine test to get your ticket. I hope they
    go after the 11 meter echo mic "audio audio" dude next. I suppose she suffers from an undiagnosed mental illness which really is apparent by looking
    at her qrz page.

    I wonder who is loonier? This lady who interfered with Police and Fire frequencies during emergencies, etc or the guy who brought the gun to the airport last week? They're both out there. One thing is for sure, this lady surely does deserve whatever she has coming to her.
