She said the store had just been robbed at gunpoint.

Within one minute of the call being dispatched, Southlake Police said officers arrived and talked to Topolinski, who told them a white or Hispanic man wearing a blue jacket, jeans, a blue hat and sunglasses came in with a gun and demanded money from the safe.

Officers checked the area and were unable to locate the described suspect. Detectives set up a crime scene and began checking video footage of Town Square. They determined that no one matching the description Topolinksi had given had been in Jamba Juice in the last few hours.

After investigating a little more, officer found some "important missing details in Amanda's story."

Police said Topolinksi ultimately admitted she made up the robbery, as she had been allegedly stealing money from the safe during the last three months. Officers also found heroin in her purse.
