I did something incredibly stupid and prank called several businesses in a major city. I live outside the city in the country. Over the course of like 2 weeks. The most stupid thing is that I didn't bother to *67 most of them. I made jokes and subtle racial innuendos, but never threatened anyone's life. It was a stupid idea.
I have gotten two voicemails in two days from a detective that wants to speak to the owner of the (my) phone in reference to "terroristic threats." He is working the case, and made it clear on the second message that it was a felony. I never threatened anyone's life or anything that would cause legitimate panic. I was just basically annoying. Anyways I never answered those calls. He hasn't mentioned anything else, he has my real number. But I don't think he knows who I am yet, nobody has shown up at the doorstep.
I am wondering if he will drop the case if I don't respond at all. I am willing to destroy my phone and claim that it was stolen a month ago (it really was, but I got it back), and suggest somebody else has it. I don't know how serious this is...don't know if he has any recordings of the calls..will he go to the trouble of acquiring my phone records? How persistent do investigators pursue these cases?
Any advice would be grand, I've just become very discomforted over this the past two days...
