NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A woman who claimed she was robbed by a group of individuals near the French Quarter, later admitted to the New Orleans Police Department that her story was fabricated. 

In the original preliminary report, it stated that the 24-year-old victim walked by the group as she was making her way back to her ship. She claims that a group of individuals knocked her down and stole money from her. As police continued their investigation, the woman admitted that her story was false. 

Police say that she has been turned over to her commanding officer. 

It is unclear at this time what branch of the military she is in. 

This is a developing story. We will provide more information as it becomes available.
