A man is arrested after making sexually explicit crank calls to female customers of his employer. 

Surprise Police report that on March 22, they arrested Larry Brent Stumfoll at the U-Haul near 168th and Northern avenues, where he works. 

Police were alerted to the harassing calls by a woman who said she had been getting a series of sexually explicit phone calls from a blocked number. However, one of the calls came from an unblocked number. 

Police tracked that number to Stumfoll. In checking his call records, police say, they discovered 52 calls made from a blocked number. 

Police report that they have contacted 15 victims so far. Some of the victims reported that they have storage lockers with U-Haul or had rented a vehicle from them recently. 

Some of the other victims were former co-workers of Stumfoll when he worked at an Olive Garden restaurant. 

Upon his arrest, Stumfoll allegedly told police that he started making the calls with the idea of "creating a YouTube channel where he would prank call people." 

Police say Stumfoll also admitted to making sexually explicit video calls to some of the women. 

He was arrested for 154 counts of harassment by communication.
