Sioux Falls Pizza Delivery Woman Admits Faking Kidnapping To Get Break From Husband


      Court documents show a Sioux Falls woman accused of faking her own kidnapping from a local pizza restaurant 11 months ago told detectives she wanted a break from her husband. 

     The woman has been charged with attempted grand theft and making a false report to authorities. She is set for arraignment next week in Minnehaha County. 

     The woman was a delivery driver for Domino’s Pizza when she called her husband last Feb 10 and said she was surrounded by multiple armed individuals who were demanding money. 

      Her husband told investigators he thought he heard pounding on a window and a car door opening before the call went dead, then he started getting text messages demanding money for the safe return of his wife. 

     As detectives were interviewing other Domino’s employees, one of them began receiving texts from the woman’s phone also demanding money for her release.

       Police tracked her last known delivery location, but didn’t find her. The customer said he didn’t notice anything unusual. 

       Authorities were eventually able to ping her phone, which led them to a restaurant in Brookings. The Brookings SWAT team was activated and found her car – with her inside along with a man. 

      She recounted the story she told her husband, but investigators called her out on discrepancies and she eventually admitted she had not been kidnapped and had sent the ransom texts herself.
