SUMMARY: On Monday, January 23, 2023, at approximately 5:07 a.m., deputies from the Victorville Police Department were dispatched to a residence on the 15000 block of Golden Meadow Lane in Victorville referencing a suspicious vehicle. The vehicle was parked in a driveway and the driver was flashing the headlights at the residence. While deputies were enroute to the location, the suspect, Joshua Trozzi, called 911 multiple times when he did not have an emergency, despite dispatch advising him of the potential criminal violation for misusing the emergency line.
