Woman Reports False Kidnapping to Get Car Back From Friend
Last week in Los Angeles, Charlene Gaston told police that she was carjacked at gunpoint, with the thief making off with a vehicle that contained a 16-year-old passenger. Gaston provided the name of the woman who she said stole the vehicle, and police issued an Amber Alert. Well, that “thief” turned out to be a friend of Gaston’s who’d borrowed her car and refused to give it back, and there was no 16-year-old passenger. Gaston was subsequently arrested on suspicion of filing a false police report.
