The FBI has arrested two teens from out of state for a pair of swatting calls last month in Houston County.  Sheriff Donald Valenza says the two calls back on January 2nd and 3rd were reporting murders at two separate locations only to have police later realize the calls were false reports.  The FBI arrested an 18-year-old in Maryland and a minor in North Carolina for making the fake calls.
