Md. Woman Fined $164 In Phony Robbery In Pa.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Maryland woman has been fined $164 for falsely reporting a robbery of a Pittsburgh hotel room belonging to a Cincinnati Reds player.

After learning Claudia Manrique, 27, of Silver Spring, Md., completed 50 hours of community service, a judge reduced her misdemeanor false report charge Thursday to summary disorderly conduct, and she pleaded guilty.

Police say Manrique was in town with Reds reliever Aroldis Chapman when she claimed a man posing as a maintenance worker robbed the player’s room at the Omni William Penn Hotel on May 29. Chapman was playing against the Pittsburgh Pirates at the time.

Police say she falsely claimed the man demanded a bag containing $200,000 worth of Chapman’s jewelry. Police say he did take $6,000 worth of other items belonging to Chapman and Manrique.
