KILLEEN, Texas — Killeen police arrested a woman they said made up a story about being pulled over and searched by two police officers.

Police said Brittany Garrett, 29, told police that on Oct. 26 two men in a Ford Crown Victoria with flashing red and blue lights pulled her over. She said they were wearing police uniforms and physically searched her before letting her go.

Police said an investigation by multiple departments determined Garrett was lying.

Garrett was arrested and charged with making a false report to police.

“The Killeen Police Department takes the safety and trust of our citizens very seriously,” said Chief Charles Kimble.

Kimble said anyone who feels concerned about being pulled over by an officer should pull over in a well-lit populated area and call 911 to verify it's a police officer making the traffic stop.
