E-mail is false, Columbiana police say



Published: Fri, January 30, 2009 @ 7:00 a.m.

COLUMBIANA — Police want to put an end to an Internet story claiming that an elderly woman was threatened recently by two men in the parking lot of a city store.

The e-mail contends the two men were banging on her car and screaming and were “totally evil.”

Detective John Jay said Thursday that the story has been “going around for a month or six weeks.”

He added that the tale has taken on a life of its own.

The department was alerted to the story by another police department. Jay said he did not try to trace the e-mail account. “We want to nip it in the bud,” he said.
