False reporting alleged

A 39-year-old Mesa County woman was issued a summons Wednesday after she allegedly falsely claimed she was kidnapped.

Tammy Condit was issued a summons on suspicion of false reporting after Grand Junction police officers responded to Wal-Mart, 2881 North Ave., on a report of a possible kidnapping, police spokeswoman Kate Porras said.

Condit told officers two men had taken her from the store parking lot, forced her into a car, drove off with her in the car and then returned her to the parking lot. After further investigation, officers determined no kidnapping took place.
