A woman from Dothan, Alabama was arrested earlier this month after she allegedly reported a burglary was taking place at her home, but instead, she was afraid of the weather, according to police.
The Dothan Police Department received a 911 call on Jan. 9 from 39-year-old Kelley Carole Giniebra, who claimed someone was burglarizing her home.
When officers arrived, they determined a burglary was not happening in the home.
After speaking with Giniebra and conducting an investigation, officers learned the caller falsely reported the crime, so officers would show up to her home promptly.

The officers also discovered the reason Giniebra wanted them to arrive so quickly was because she was afraid of the bad weather happening that day, police reported.
Giniebra was ultimately arrested and charged with making a false report to law enforcement.
