False information given to police officer
Parking Structure 1
Two people, watched entering on the ground floor, were questioned by CPS on the fifth floor. The two people stated they were looking for a vehicle they had loaned out and which had been left in the parking garage because the person who had borrowed it had been drinking. One of the two people showed identification to CPS. The other person claimed not to be carrying any and gave a name, but a check found that it was a false name. Both of the two people were released. Later it was determined that the person who gave a false name is wanted on a felony warrant.
