A Norcross, Ga., man was arrested Monday after Columbus police say he made a false report about having his car stolen.
Dwayne Nurse, 48, was arrested at Firestone Complete Auto Care at 2 p.m. Monday in connection with the false report, police said.
According to reports, the suspect said his 2010 black Chevrolet Malibu was stolen between 4:30 and 5 a.m. Monday. After investigating, the suspect told police that he had instead loaned his car to a friend who didn’t return it to the hotel where they were staying. The car was later found by the suspect at Krystal, 3029 Manchester Expressway.
