Two men are facing charges in connection with a nationwide ‘swatting’ spree that targeted a home in Oxnard.
On Monday, federal prosecutors charged the 21-year-old from Wisconsin and the 20-year-old from North Carolina. For a week in November of 2020, they allegedly hacked into Ring home security cameras and placed 911 calls. Once they got an armed response, they taunted and threatened police who showed up at the homes. They’re accused of making a dozen swatting calls nationwide, including in Oxnard and West Covina. Both men are facing five years in prison, if convicted.
