ORMOND BEACH — A 54-year-old woman has been arrested after allegedly admitting she faked an abduction.
The Volusia Sheriff’s Office says Vicki Teneyck claimed she pulled off U.S. Highway 1 outside Ormond Beach when a man appeared. She told authorities he brandished a knife, forced his way into her car and made her drive to several banks and withdraw money.
Deputies grew suspicious because of inconsistencies. They say she admitted she fabricated the story because she was stealing money from her mother to buy drugs.
