EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Eugene police say a woman made up a story about being kidnapped from a store parking lot last weekend.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/xm5E6Z ) that police said Tuesday the 35-year-old Cottage Grove woman had been cited for initiating a false report.

The woman called police last Saturday evening to say she had been forced into her car by a man in the store parking lot, then made to drive out of the city. She said the man took her money and fled.

Police and Lane County sheriff’s deputies searched for a suspect.

Meanwhile, police Lt. Jen Bills says police detectives reviewed parking lot surveillance footage. That’s how they discovered the woman had gotten into her car alone.

Bills said such fictional crimes are “very unusual.”
