Two people were arrested recently and charged with filing false police reports in separate incidents. In the first incident, Garcia Hernandez Neveo, 25, reported that he had been robbed three times near the English Oaks apartments over the past month. When Neveo reported the third alleged robbery, he told police how disappointed he was that they were never able to help him, and took his story to the media. Neveo was intoxicated when he made the third report and was unable to keep his story straight. He was questioned by officers of the Southside Precinct LOOP (Latino Officers Outreach Program) and when his story began to fall apart, he told them the previous robbery reports were false. He was charged with filing a false report of a crime, obstruction by giving false information and public intoxication, and taken to jail. In the second case, Ronique Everett, 20, of Richmond Hill told police she was abducted three weeks ago from the Target store and robbed at gunpoint. An investigation into the report revealed that Everett was never abducted or robbed at gunpoint, but was instead the victim of a flim-flam scam, in which victims are lured into believing they will get something for nothing. She also was arrested and taken to jail.
