2 CHARGED FOR FALSE REPORTS

SAVANNAH, GA (April 19, 2013): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Islands Precinct detectives have charged two Savannah people who falsely reported their vehicles stolen after they were involved in traffic accidents.

Jaimye Campbell, 31, of a Hanson Street address was charged with filing false police report, and Russell Sample, 50, an East 52nd Street address was charged with false report of a crime and false statements and writing after the incidents.

Campbell was charged after her green Jeep Cherokee was involved in an accident at Wheaton and Cedar Streets at 1:10 p.m. March 16. She told police she had walked to the intersection after hearing her Jeep was involved in the wreck.

She told police her car had been stolen from a car wash on Skidaway Road and that she had called police to report it. But the report came in a few minutes after the crash. It was later determined that she was in the Jeep with a male friend who was driving when the crash occurred.

Sample had reported at 11 a.m. on April 6 that his light blue 1999 Chevrolet 15-passenger van had been stolen from a parking lot at Skidaway and East Victory Drive where he had left it overnight.

The van had been found at a house on Johnny Mercer Boulevard where it had struck a garage and had been left locked with the keys taken.
