Police say woman lied about kidnapping, rape

10-10-2004 Indiana

.An Indianapolis woman was arrested today after authorities said she falsely claimed to have been kidnapped, raped and forced into the trunk of her car along with her 3-year-old son. Lodis V. Teague, 24, was booked into the Arrestee Processing Center on preliminary charges of false reporting and child neglect.

"She fabricated the entire story. She was never sexually assaulted and she is the one who put her child into the trunk of her car," said Capt. Phil Burton, a Marion County sheriff's department spokesman.

The police report indicates that the woman tried unsuccessfully to place calls from her cellular phone. A relative who was not part of the hoax found her, Burton said. Burton said he's not sure of her motive or why she misled detectives.

He said the sheriff's department wants to "send a message" to warn people "that you will go to jail" in such a hoax. Child neglect is a class D felony, punishable by six months to three years in prison if convicted. ..more.. Tom Spalding
