Update: 1 woman arrested, only suspect in armed robbery, gave a fake tip


UNICOI COUNTY, TN (WJHL)- A man hunt in Unicoi County is over. In fact there were never suspects in the first place. Unicoi County sheriff Mike Hensley told News Channel 11 that Jacquline Lane, who was arrested Saturday night gave deputies a false tip.

Authorities say she made up the three armed men who supposedly accompanied her during the robbery of H&H Auto in Unicoi County. Lane stole a car from the business and was arrested a short time afterwards.

The sheriff says that Lane is charged with burglary, theft over $1,000, and vandalism but more charges are likely.
