HAMPTON - A woman who reported a robbery Monday made it up for April Fool's, Hampton Police said.

It was just before 6:00 a.m. when police responded to Waffle House in the 2600 block of W. Mercury Blvd. near Aberdeen Road.

Police say Susan Alexandria Tinker had called about the robbery.

Officers spoke to her, created a report and brought in K-9 to find the suspect and while waiting for the manager to arrive to review surveillance camera footage, they determined there had not been a robbery.

Tinker is charged with misdemeanor falsely summonsing police.
