Woman claims twin stole hotel items

BIG BEAVER, Pa. (AP) - August 22, 2012

The Beaver County Times reports Wednesday that police charged 31-year-old Jennifer Brown, of Rochester, with false reports to police and theft.

State police say Brown took some bed clothes, an alarm clock, coffee pot, basket and a hair dryer - worth a total of $206 - from the Holiday Inn in Big Beaver on Aug. 5. Police say they found Brown in another hotel nearby and she claimed her twin sister had taken the items.

When police found no record of a sister, they say Brown claimed her sister had just returned the items, which police found in the other hotel room.

Brown doesn't have an attorney. And police say relatives confirmed she doesn't have a twin sister.
