The Norwalk Police Department spent time early Thursday morning looking for two suspects who didn't exist.
Joyce N. Marsillett, 24, of 103 Jefferson St., Lot 27, admitted several hours later she made up her complaint about two male suspects wearing ski masks forcing their way into her home, Chief Kevin Cashen said. The woman needed the money for an undisclosed purpose and stole the $500 from her sister, who lives with her, he explained.
"There were no gunmen. She made up the story to cover her theft," Cashen said.
