NEW CASTLE — A woman looking for a ride has been charged with making false reports to law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

Pennsylvania state police said Geri Trimble, 51, of 109 Dryfuse Lane, Wampum, was arraigned before District Judge Jennifer Nicholson on the charges.

Police said between Dec. 1 and 4, Trimble made seven calls to the Lawrence County 911 Center reporting incidents that had not occurred.

Troopers said they had responded six times “in an emergency capacity,” but found that no crimes or incidents had occurred.

Following the final call, police said, Trimble admitted she had contacted 911 because she needed a ride to obtain medication and needed a ride to a friend’s house.
