Md. Woman Charged for False Amber Alert
TOWSON, Md. (AP) _ A woman who told police her two children had been abducted, prompting a statewide Amber Alert, was charged Wednesday with making a false statement.
Dena Robin Hunt told police April 16 that her two toddlers had been taken by Juan Davis Sr., 25, her ex-boyfriend and the father of one of the children.
Davis heard the Amber Alert broadcast and called investigators, saying he had been caring for the children since April 13. Family members verified Davis’ story, Baltimore County police said.
Hunt didn’t anticipate the Amber Alert would be used when she filed the false report, police said.
