A Georgia State Patrol employee has been arrested after she allegedly lied about being held at gun point earlier this year.
Reports said that on Wednesday a complaint was made to emergency personnel in reference to an armed suspect at the Georgia State Patrol Post 38 located on Martha Berry Hwy in Rome, Ga. Officers arrived on scene and made contact with Administrative Employee Lisa Stewart who provided information about a white male wearing dark clothing entering the post and presenting a firearm.
According to the complainant, the male threatened her. Floyd County Police Department along with surrounding agencies canvassed the area and did not locate the suspect. Floyd County Police contacted Region 1 with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for assistance in the investigation.
With the help of investigators and crime scene technicians from GBI, the processing of evidence and interviews were completed. The evidentiary findings at the end of the initial investigation revealed that the report was false.
Stewart is charged with false statements and writings, false report of a crime, and transmitting a false public alarm.
