QUINCY -- A Golden woman who admitted to filing a false police report earlier this year has been sentenced to probation in Adams County Circuit Court.

Hanna E. Miller, 24, was sentenced to 18 months probation and 90 days in jail and ordered to perform 60 hours of community service by Judge Scott Larson during a sentencing hearing Tuesday in Adams County Circuit Court. Larson also fined Miller $250, and she will have to pay $843.63 in restitution to the Adams County Sheriff's Department. Miller in May had pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

Miller was arrested on Jan. 21, six days after she claimed that she had been stabbed with a sharp object during an armed robbery at a car wash in the 400 block of Wood Street in Camp Point. Police said Miller had a cut on her arm when they found her at the scene. Officers recovered a knife in one of the bays of the car wash. An investigation by the Adams County Sheriff's Department found that Miller had purchased the knife that was found in the car wash.

Her report prompted law enforcement officials to conduct a search for the alleged robber through Camp Point on Jan. 15. Schools in Camp Point were locked down during the search.

Larson stayed Miller's jail time pending a future review. Miller has been free since posting $200 bond on Jan. 22.
