Victorville police arrest homeless man for abusing 911 after he calls 16 times in 45 minutes

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A 40-year-old homeless man who called 911 over a dozen times in a single hour to accuse a deputy of stealing his ID card was arrested.

The suspect, Ivester Voner, was contacted by a deputy during a pedestrian check, at approximately 1:10 am on August 29, 2019, near Valley Center and Lorene Drives in Victorville.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez told Victor Valley News that everything checked fine with Voner and the deputy proceeded on to other calls for service.

A short time after the contact, Voner began calling 911 yelling about the deputy taking his ID and not returning it.

Rodriguez said the deputy was contacted and confirmed he had returned the ID card to Voner prior to departing the pedestrian check.

Voner continued to call 911, yelling about his ID prompting deputies to return to his location and make contact with him.

“The ID card was found at the location, where it had been the whole time,” stated Rodriguez.

According to Rodiguez, Voner made a total of 16 calls to 911 in a 45 minute time period, being told each time that the line was to be used for emergencies only.

Voner was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center. He was Cite and Released with no court appearance scheduled, per public booking logs.
