Woman called 911 after losing money in drug deal

Police in Georgia arrested Sada Chisholm Tuesday night, after she falsely reported an armed robbery.

According to Savannah-Chatham police, Chisholm lost $1,500 in a drug deal, then called 911 and filed a written report with police claiming she'd been robbed at gunpoint. She claimed to have gotten the cash after cashing a check at a liquor store. Detectives talked with the clerk who told them the store had not cashed any checks for her.

She's charged with filing false statements, criminal trespass, and reckless conduct. She faces additional charges from an unrelated fight after police found a handgun in her car.

Filing a false report with police is punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a $1000 fine. However, anyone convicted of making false statements during the course of an investigation could face felony charges, which carry a penalty up to five years in prison. (info & photo from WTOC TV)
