    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange County deputies say a felon made two calls to 911 Monday to report fake shootings to distract deputies from an ongoing investigation – and the fact that his apartment was illegally stocked with weapons and drugs.

    Deputies said they were investigating 27-year-old Kjuan Brown after an acquaintance reported that Brown had stolen her iPhone. Less than an hour after the victim reported the crime to police, deputies said a phone number they eventually linked to Brown made two separate phone calls to 911 reporting shootings at two different locations in Orange County.

    Investigators said after they responded to both scenes, both reports were deemed to be fake.

    Brown is currently behind bars at the Orange County Jail.
