Woman arrested for false kidnapping report

Posted: Updated:

Georgetown Police arrested Delisha Thomas Wednesday morning for falsely reporting to police that she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted last week.

"I'm in a trunk," said Delisha Thomas.

That's the voice of Delisha Thomas you hear, calling 911 for help on November 11, 2013.

"I don't have a lot of battery on my phone," said Thomas.

The operator tries desperately to get as much information as possible from her.

Dispatch operator asked, "Ma'am, did you say that someone took you?'

"Yes," answered Delisha."

Dispatch operator asked, "Are they around you anywhere?

"I don't know," Delisha answered.

Georgetown Police say right from the start, there were holes in Delisha's story.

Captain Roland Waits, with Georgetown PD, said, "She was very vague about descriptions as to where she was at. The places that she said that she went through, the intersections, we checked live feed crime cameras that APD has set up and she was not in those intersections."

Delisha told investigators on November 10, 2013 she was kidnapped at gunpoint in Austin. She told police she woke up in a locked bathroom at an unknown location, was sexually assaulted and forced to do household chores.

On November 11, 2013, Delisha told detectives she was forced into the trunk of her car and driven around for a while until her attacker stopped to douse her with bleach, eventually leaving her on Smith Creek Road in Georgetown.

Waits said, "She told us she had her cell phone on her the whole time. We placed her at an HEB off of Riverside, a McDonald's in Killeen, all during this time. The information was pointing more and more toward this was a made-up story."

Just a year ago, Delisha Thomas was the center of a hoax at her former school, Huston-Tillotson University. She claimed to have received of the top four scores in the country on the LSAT, or Law School Admission Test. Huston-Tillotson officials say they determined Delisha never took the test. She left school without earning a degree.

Georgetown Police found a receipt in her car from a McDonald's in Killeen, plus security video proving she was there, with a man, the same day she called 911.

On November 19, 2013, Georgetown Police confronted her with what the investigation uncovered.

Waits said, "she went so far as to say it was all made up. None of it actually happened...she poured the bleach on herself and locked herself in the trunk of her car."

Delisha Thomas is now charged with filing a false police report.

She's being held in the Williamson County Jail on an $8,000 bond.

Police also say she did not give them a reason as to why she went to such lengths to create a false report.
