One local woman thought she could avoid paying for a rented television by telling police it was stolen. The problem? Police paid her a visit, and found the TV safe and sound at her apartment.
Regina Ann Miller, 51, of the 200 block of Cork Lane in Reisterstown, was arrested and charged with making a false statement after reporting a burglary to officers at the Baltimore County Police Franklin Precinct No. 3.
“It became clear that she was concocting the story to avoid payment on a TV that she had rented,” according to a press release. “An officer met her at her home and found the TV inside her apartment, plugged in and with dust on it.”
