Three teens were arrested during January 2013 after allegedly using a BB gun to rob a juvenile who, police said, had been asked by a 36-year-old Abilene woman to buy drugs. Police originally thought a woman had been robbed near Wylie Intermediate School, but investigators later determined the woman who originally claimed to have been the victim – 36-year-old Melissa G. Garza – had falsely reported what happened. The investigation revealed Garza never had her purse stolen and that the “true victim” was a juvenile who had been directed by Garza to “purchase illicit narcotics from the suspects at the street corner,” according to an Abilene Police Department news release.
