(Newser) – When 24-year-old Keith Gaylor called the cops to say that an armed burglar was trying to get into his house, five squad cars rushed to his house and made an arrest. But they released the suspect pretty fast after hearing her side of the story—they’re pretty sure that this “burglar” was actually a woman Gaylor met on Craigslist, and that he called the cops when she arrived because his live-in girlfriend had come home unexpectedly, the Colorado Springs Gazette reports.

“When they started listening to the story, they said there’s more to the story than meets the eye,” a police spokeswoman explained. They’ve served Gaylor a summons for false reporting to authorities, a misdemeanor.
