A Columbus woman was taken into custody Saturday morning after she allegedly called 911 to falsely report being robbed at the Circle K on South Lumpkin Road, authorities said.
Constance Surratt, 35, faces one count of unlawful conduct. She was booked into the Muscogee County Jail for an 8 a.m. Tuesday hearing in Recorder's Court.
Columbus police were called to the Circle K at 3274 Victory Drive around 6:19 a.m. Saturday to investigate a robbery. They were later told that the correct location was the Circle K at 1715 South Lumpkin Road.
Officers entered the business and met with Surratt and two other people. All three people arrived at the gas station in Surratt's black 1997 Chevrolet Suburban.

Seven officers responded to the scene to help with the investigation. They spoke with Surratt, who authorities said wasn't making sense when reporting the crime.
Officials said she was being dramatic and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. Surratt accused one of the men she arrived to the business with of threatening her.
The store clerk told police that Surratt and the man were acting friendly in the store.. Officials said there was no evidence of a valid threat or a robbery.
