Woman Charged in Bogus Car-Theft Incident

Posted June 19, 2007

— A woman was charged Tuesday in connection with an incident that prompted a missing child investigation.

At around 7:30 p.m. Monday, investigators said Devona Stewart, 30, of Boundary Drive, reported a Chevrolet Cavalier taken from the CVS store at Grove Streets with 17-month-old Alexis Moore inside.

Authorities said the mother of the child and another relative were allegedly trying to track down the vehicle.

Fayetteville police contacted Dunn police after establishing that the initial report of a stolen car and an abduction were false. Dunn officers confirmed the child was safe at around 11:15 p.m., Fayetteville police reported.

Fayetteville police have charged Stewart with filing a false police report.

    This lady is being treated unfairly. It's perfectly OK to make false statements to the cops in Durham, just a few miles up the road from Fayetteville. Just ask Crystal Mangum, who made lots and lots and lots of false statements to cops about being gang raped by Duke LAX players. And she walked away grinning, no charges, no nothing. Why should Ms. Stewart of Fayettville face charges for lying to the police about a car theft when Ms. Mangum of Durham can repeatedly lie to the police about a gang rape that never happened, and then just walk away?
