Police say a New Jersey woman made a fake 911 call during a traffic stop in an effort to trick police into letting her go.

The incident began around 11:35 p.m. Monday in Camden County when the woman was pulled over by an officer.

After the officer made the traffic stop, a 911 call came in of a person armed with a shotgun at a nearby store.

However, no such incident ever took place.

As it turns out, police say, a woman inside the car made that fake 911 call in hopes that the officer would be dispatched to the store.

The ruse did not work, and two people inside the car were arrested.

Charged are 28-year-old Robert Webb, of Camden, and 25-year-old Janora Carter, of Camden.

Both Webb and Carter were wanted on outstanding warrants.
