Los Angeles police confirmed to TMZ that a minor is in custody in relation to wasting SWAT resources by pulling several high-profile pranks on law enforcement.
"On December 10, 2012, Hollywood Detectives arrested a juvenile from the Southern California region for the Ashton Kutcher swatting incident, as well as a similar swatting incident that took place at the home of Justin Bieber. Other swatting incidents involving this individual have been identified," the LAPD spokesperson said.
Police were called to Kutcher's home in October to investigate an alleged robbery, but found no evidence of the crime when they arrived.
A similar prank was pulled on Miley Cyrus in August, although it is not yet clear if these incidents are connected.
Charges against the subject could be announced in the coming days.
