31-year-old Kristina Larsen was charged with a false report after she admitted to lying to the police about a man carjacking her at gunpoint.
On October 23rd, Kristina Larsen called the Memphis Police Department to report that her car was stolen by a man she knew by the name of “Trap.” She stated that she picked Trap up from a gas station and then took him to a Save-A-Lot on Jackson Avenue. When they arrived, he told her to go around the back of the building. He did so, she said, to smoke a blunt. Afterward, she told police that he pulled a gun on her and told her to get out of her 2005 GMC Yukon. She complied, he got into the vehicle and fled. Members of the Violent Crimes Unit (VCU) were then contacted so that they could take over the incident. Later in the day, investigators identified Trap as Logan England.
England was located at 1311 Standridge Street and placed into custody. Upon questioning, he denied any involvement in the carjacking. He gave the officers the names of his alibis, who stated that the car was given to him by Larsen. On October 29th, Larsen was brought back to the VCU office and was read her rights. When she waiving her right to counsel, she was confronted with the fallacies in her story. Reportedly, she confessed that she was not carjacked by Logan at gunpoint, but she instead gave him the vehicle a few days prior because she felt threatened. She then told police that she lied, she wanted her boyfriend’s truck back and was unsure how to go about it.
Kristina Larsen was placed under arrest and charged with a false offense report. She was later released on her own recognizance.
