Woman Tells Police TV Stolen To Avoid Payment

A Reisterstown woman was charged with making a false statement to police after an officer found a TV she said was stolen inside her apartment.

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.”

Why would anyone rent a TV. That alone gives away the level of stupidity. The call to police put the garnish on the stupidity. Good work on the cop's investigation. I'm sure having to step into a roach filled home to spot the TV goes above the call of duty.

Why would you expect the police to follow up on a stolen TV? They didnt do anything when my car was broken into in front of my house TWICE in 6 months.
