APD: Woman Falsely Reports Husband Threatening to Harm Himself

A woman calls police reporting her husband is threatening self-harm, but police find out she has an ulterior motive.

Monday afternoon at about 4:05 p.m., agents with the Special Operations Division contacted a motorist in the 100 block of Burger Street for a traffic violation. A K-9 assisted on the traffic stop. The male driver of the vehicle was contacted. During the investigation, the K-9 alerted on the vehicle for the presence of narcotics. A search of the vehicle revealed approximately 6 grams of crack cocaine packaged for resale and approximately one ounce of marijuana. The driver of the vehicle was arrested for felony Delivery of a Controlled Substance (cocaine) and for misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana.

Monday afternoon at about 5:30 p.m., APD Dispatch received a call from a female subject stating her husband had been threatening to harm himself. This calling party alleged that her husband was communicating with her electronically via text messages. Officer Brandon Scott was one of the officers that responded to this check-welfare call. Officers contacted the calling party at a business in the 2600 block of Buffalo Gap Road. The search for the husband continued and the female subject notified officers at one point that the husband had been located. The husband was contacted by officers. The preliminary investigation revealed that the husband had not injured himself or sent any text messages concerning the allegation reported by the female subject. Cell phones belonging to both of these parties were examined during the investigation and did not corroborate the threats reported. The investigation revealed that the call to police from the female subject was a ruse. The subject’s false report was made in an attempt to locate her vehicle that her husband possessed. The female subject was arrested for misdemeanor (Class A) False Alarm or Report.
