WOODBRIDGE, Va. - Prince William County police say a woman who called 911 to report a robbery ended up behind bars herself.  Investigators say the money 19-year-old Amanda Twomey reported stolen was cash she gave to the suspect in exchange for marijuana—which he never produced.

Just after 5 p.m. on August 17, officers were called to a location on Longwood Manor Court in Woodbridge after Twomey called 911.  Investigators say she made arrangements to meet Jackson Crisler to buy marijuana from him.  Once she got there, Twomey told police he pulled a gun on her and demanded cash, and then left with it.  Instead, police say Jackson took the cash without handing over the pot Twomey wanted to purchase.

Police arrested both Twomey and Crisler.  Twomey faces charges of filing a false police report and attempted possession of marijuana.  She's being held without bond.  Crisler, 20, is charged with attempted possession with intent to distribute marijuana.  He is also being held without bond.
