Police Beat – Not-so-stolen vehicle

A woman who tried to report a vehicle stolen from a home in the 2300 block of Belvedere about 11 p.m. Sunday later admitted that the vehicle had been taken and damaged by someone she knew who she was trying to protect from getting in trouble. In fact, she said she had already located the “missing” vehicle, with flat tires and other damage, at a Baytown apartment complex.

The woman, identified as 35-year-old Heather Capen, was charged with filing a false police report.
