LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A Lake Charles woman has been arrested after filing a false police report, according to Lt. Keenum with the Lake Charles Police Department.
Lake Charles PD responded to an attempted carjacking and simple robbery that allegedly occurred in the Walmart parking lot at 1:36 p.m., on Fri., Jan. 25.
The victim, later identified as Beverly Ann Gary, 56, told the responding officers that two suspects tried to take her vehicle and also took an undisclosed amount of money out of her purse, said Keenum. During the investigation officers learned that the ‘victim’ was not telling the truth.
In an interview today, the woman told officers that she lied about being robbed and had fabricated the whole incident.
Gary is now facing charges of false communication with the intent to cause and emergency response. A bond has not been set at this time.
