False 911 report lands Garner woman in jail

Posted May 29, 2014

Jeanette Levett Foster

A Garner woman is facing charges after she allegedly called 911 because she wanted police to go to her home to see if her husband was with another woman.

Jeanette Levett Foster, 70, of 4214 Battle Field Road, was arrested Thursday on misdemeanor charges of misuse of the 911 system and giving a false report to police.

According to an arrest warrant issued March 15, Foster initially reported that she was being held at gunpoint in her home.

"She later admitted to being out of state when the call was made and just wanted law enforcement to check her residence and make sure another woman was not with her husband," the warrant states.

    This is wake county you are talking about. Police routinely use the my word against yours mentality and would charge a turnip with a crime because they can do so without any accountability for their actions

    I wouldn't be with another woman, I'd be in a different state. No supper tonight.

    Lady if you do not trust the man then one of you move out. Time to move on with your life and be happy. But as others have said sorry but you made a wrong choice in calling the police you should have called a friend or your pastor and had them check on your husband for you not waste police time,

    I'm sure this took valuable resources away from the residents of Garner while several police cars went out to her house to "rescue" her from her captives. Who knows, she might have cost some othe victims their lives because they didn't get help in time.

    could have called in a welfare or residence check or even a suspicious person but the fact her lie was a serious situation is what got her in trouble
