Police: False kidnapping report leads to theft, drug charges for NH woman
MONT VERNON- Police responded to a reported armed kidnapping on Joe English Road and Tater Street early Tuesday morning.
Lauryn Mont, 23 of Lyndeborough, claimed she was driving down the road when a male jumped out of the woods and forced his way into her vehicle.
She then reported being held at knifepoint for three hours.
After extensive questioning and investigating, Mont Vernon police said they found numerous inconsistencies. They later located video evidence that Mont was not actually in Mont Vernon at the alleged kidnapping time.
Early Wednesday afternoon, the Milford Police Department received a report that a purse and set of keys had been taken from Union Coffee on South Street. A Honda CRV was also reported stolen, which subsequently traced back to Mont.
Police said Mont admitted that she made up the kidnapping story and was not held at knifepoint.
Mont Vernon Police arrested and charged Mont with false report to law enforcement. Milford police charged Mont with theft, theft of a motor vehicle and possession of a controlled drug.
Mont is being held at Valley Street Jail on $5,000 cash bail and will be seen in court on Dec. 29.
