The Elderly Female Carjacker-Fiction!

The Florida Lady Thought She Was Foiling Carjackers-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

An elderly lady pulls a gun on four guys she thinks are trying to steal her car.  They flee in terror then she realizes it wasn’t her car!  She goes to the police to report her mistake and the four guys are there reporting an elderly woman who is a carjacker.

The Truth:

This story would be hilarious if true, but we have not found any evidence that it really happened.  Police in Sarasota, Florida, know nothing of it.

We’ve not found any documentation of it happening anywhere else.
