      Sheriff: Suspicious person report was made up

      Detectives with the Lexington County Sheriff's Department have determined the report of a suspicious person who approached a young girl outside of her home near South Congaree was a made up story.

      LEXINGTON COUNTY (WACH) - Detectives with the Lexington County Sheriff's Department say the report of a suspicious person approaching a young girl outside of her home near South Congaree was a made up story.

      Sheriff James R. Metts says the 9-year-old girl admitted fabricating the report after her mother told detectives on Tuesday that the girl would meet with a State Law Enforcment Division forensic sketch artist.

      According to Metts, the girl told detectives a car was not parked in the driveway of her home and no one walked toward her or chased after her when she arrived home from school last Thursday.
