CROWLEY, La. (AP) - Police say a 34-year-old Crowley woman they arrested tried to convince investigators that her estranged boyfriend was sending her threatening text messages.

The Advertiser reports (http://bit.ly/VKvuc2 ) Trudy Miller was arrested Tuesday on one count of false swearing for violation of health or safety, a felony charge.

Crowley Chief of Police K.P. Gibson says Miller was believed to be the victim of stalking about five weeks ago when she filed her first complaint.

But after charges were filed, Gibson said Miller's former boyfriend repeatedly said he didn't own the cellphone from which the threatening texts were sent.

After further investigation, Gibson says detectives found that Miller was in possession of the cellphone being used to send her threatening text messages.

It was unclear whether Miller has an attorney.
