Authorities say a Nevada pizza delivery driver made up a story that she was robbed, including detailed descriptions that led to composite sketches of two men.
Nye County Sheriff's Detective David Boruchowitz (buh-ROOK'-uh-witz) says 27-year-old Keri Rush was arrested Tuesday after an investigation of her report that she was robbed after a pizza delivery Monday night in Pahrump, about 60 miles west of Las Vegas.
According to investigators, Rush claimed two black men approached her, demanded money and ran off. She described the two in detail _ including their height, weight and clothing _ and police released sketches of the men to the public.
On Tuesday, Rush was jailed on suspicion of malicious prosecution and false reporting of a crime. Detectives say that after conducting interviews and searches, they determined she stole the money to pay a drug debt.
It wasn't immediately known if Rush had an attorney.
