False Reporting Leads to Additional Charges


KNOX COUNTY, Indiana (DLC Media) – A wanted woman now faces even more charges after multiple false 911 calls. Samantha Richards attempted to divert Knox County officers from her home by calling and reporting that she was in multiple places. Dispatch reported multiple 911 hang-up calls from Richards’s home. Richards would then call again claiming that she was in a different town at a gas station stating that her husband was chasing her. This claim was also false as deputies went on to search the home and located Richards hiding inside a vehicle.

A misdemeanor charge was added to Richards’s warrant for false informing and interfering with 911.
