A woman who claimed her car had been stolen but still had both keys has entered a guilty plea to perjury for lying to police.The woman, Kachina Ferrell, 24, entered a guilty plea before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to the charge of perjury and was given an 11-month, 29-day probationary sentence and must pay court costs.Her probation comes after she called police to report her Mitsubishi Lancer had been stolen.“She had the only two keys to the vehicle in her possession and she advised the vehicle was locked when it was stolen,” reported McMinnville policeman Eddie Colwell.The vehicle was later located at Jeff’s Towing on Sparta Highway after it had been wrecked and abandoned. The officer was then told the rest of the story.“She advised that around 11:30 p.m. on yesterday’s date, (a friend) was driving her vehicle down Bethany Road when the tire made a loud noise and the vehicle struck a ditch,” the woman told police, noting there was no dark secret behind abandoning her car other than fear. “The two got out of the vehicle and ran due to being scared.”
