SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah family has become the victim of extreme stalking involving unwanted service providers repeatedly being sent to their home.

The Deseret News reported Friday that Walt Gilmore’s family in suburban Salt Lake City has been the target since August of a stalker using calls and texts to send a parade of people to the home for legitimate services and illegal activities.

Gilmore says up to 20 people per day arrive saying they were called to provide electrical, plumbing and towing services, while others are seeking drugs.

Authorities say the person responsible may be using a computer program making calls appear to originate from another number.

Gilmore says they have taken out a civil injunction against the person they believe is responsible.

Court records indicate the man lives in Hawaii.
