Police: Shrewsbury woman lied about rent money being stolen to avoid eviction

A Shrewsbury woman was charged with false reports to police after she said her rent money had been stolen to avoid eviction, according to state police.

Michelle Lee McBride, 32, of the 16000 block of Susquehanna Trail South reported on Dec. 8 that she had been robbed of $400 while walking to drop off her rent money, police said.

After no suspects were found, McBride confessed that she made a false report because she didn’t have the money to pay her rent and was afraid she’d be evicted.

She was charged with unsworn falsification to authorities and false reports to law enforcement.
