    Quick Facts: Police said a young woman falsely reported a robbery. She said it happened at a Tulsa QuikTrip, but police learned it did not. Detectives said that the robbery happened somewhere else while she was trying to buy marijuana. WATCH FOX23 Sara Whaley's full report above. Tulsa police said a woman falsely reported being robbed at a QuikTrip when she was actually robbed during a drug deal at another location. According to detectives, Kaylee Blaylock first reported that she was robbed at the store near 4545 North Lewis earlier this month when she was followed and hit from behind. Blaylock's mother went on social media to demand justice and said 'no one helped my daughter as people were harming her.' FOX23 learned about the case when it happened but chose not to report it until surveillance footage from QuikTrip was made available. Police said that the footage did not show any signs of a robbery. When detectives interviewed Blaylock again, she reportedly came clean and said she was robbed elsewhere while buying marijuana. Blaylock was criminally cited for filing a false police report and will appear in court. Officials warn residents that with cameras nearly everywhere, investigators will find out whether someone lied about something that did or did not happen. QuikTrip said it is offensive that anyone would involve their company in such a lie. They told FOX23 they spent hours reviewing surveillance footage and talking with employees in order to help the woman, only to find out she lied. The company and police hope this case will be a lesson to others.
