ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A Baconton man is arrested for making prank calls to the Mitchell County 911 center.

Investigators say 22-year-old Jeffery Gilbert called 911 for help three times this week, but each time it was a prank.

On Monday, he claimed City Hall was being burglarized.

Tuesday he called for an ambulance to be sent to Dollar general where he said a woman was having a baby.

Wednesday, he claimed there was a crash on Highway 19.

Police say making prank calls to 911 is a serious offense.  They charged Gilbert with unlawful conduct during a 911 call and requesting ambulance service not needed.
