The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says it thought it had a home invasion on its hands, but investigators says it turns out the whole thing was made up.
Now Hope Ciaio is charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing for making false statements to the responding deputies. She told deputies early this morning two unknown men came to the front door of her Catherine Lake Road home and asked to use her phone. She told deputies that she then shut the door and locked it and they went around and kicked in the back door and busted in.
Investigators say Ciaio knew one of the men and she had let him in, but then he became aggressive and refused to leave. It was at that time she called 911 saying there had been a home invasion.
