Four Evans women were recently arrested for lying about a fake car-jacking.
Rosa Allien Timpson, 23; De’Metria Michelle Osborne, 20; and Laquandra Sashun Fenn, 34, all of Sumter Landing Lane, and Markisha Shaundralyn Jackson, 21, of Old Evans Road, were charged with making false statements. Timpson also was charged with making a false report of a crime and Fenn also was charged with a seatbelt violation and driving on a suspended license.
Timpson and Jackson told deputies late on Feb. 25 that they stopped to help a stranded motorist, who waved them down at about 10:30 p.m. on Conn Drive near Sumter Landing subdivision. The women said they stopped the BMW Timpson was driving and found two men with an SUV with the flashers on.
The women claimed the men threatened them and one of the men stole the BMW and the other drove away in the SUV.
