Amanda Little of Oxford, 26, filed her report with the Conyers Police Department late last month, alleging she had been abducted from a Wal-Mart parking lot in Conyers and taken to an undisclosed location about 15 minutes away. There, she told police, she was raped by four men.
After finding no evidence of the abduction in footage from the store's outdoor surveillance cameras, investigators confronted Little, and she said she had fabricated the entire incident, according to police sources.
Little then allegedly told police she had been with another man when her cell phone accidentally dialed a friend of her boyfriend. The call went unanswered, but the friend's voice mail recorded her having sex with her secret lover. Little then fabricated the gang-rape story in an effort to cover up her indiscretion, police said.
"Our detectives did a good job with ferreting out the truth here," said Conyers Police Department Capt. Scott Freeman, who added that "cases like this simply are a waste of time. ... We have a zero-tolerance stance on false reports."
Little was taken into custody Thursday and charged with the false report of a crime.
