Suspicious Person Report Determined to be Fabricated


Lexington County Sheriff’s Department detectives on Tuesday, March 26 determined that a 9-year-old girl fabricated a report about a suspicious person being in the driveway of her home on Midway Street near South Congaree at about 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. The girl told detectives on Tuesday that she “made up a story” in a misguided attempt to get attention.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said the 9-year-old girl admitted fabricating the report after the girl’s mother told detectives on Tuesday that her daughter would not meet with a South Carolina Law Enforcement Division forensic sketch artist as scheduled at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday in order to prepare a composite sketch of the alleged suspicious person.

The 9-year-old girl told detectives on Tuesday that a motor vehicle was not parked in the driveway when she arrived home after exiting a school bus at a public school bus stop near her residence, Metts said. The girl also told detectives that no one walked towards her or chased after her when she arrived at her home on Thursday.
