(BLOOMINGTON) - Police in Indiana and Illinois are looking for a caller who claimed he had hostages, explosives and nerve gas, bringing officers to homes in two cities with the same name.

The Herald-Times reports police in Bloomington, Ind., and Bloomington, Ill., received the calls last week.

The caller initially gave Illinois police a fictitious address, then told them it was in Indiana.
Police who responded to the call in Indiana found a surprised resident who had been watching a movie while his 2-year-old daughter slept.

The man who met police at the address in Illinois told officers he was being taunted by a disgruntled chat room user who was making prank calls using his name.

A second call in the Illinois city brought a SWAT team to the scene.
