Woman charged in false report

By James Tinley

— Several months after a Bridgeport woman filed a complaint claiming she was pulled over by a phony police officer, she was arrested by a real one for allegedly making a false statement.
Police said Nicole Quiles, 28, of 681 Stratford Ave., who claimed in November to have been pulled over by someone posing as a police officer, concocted the story. She was arrested Friday on a warrant charging second-degree falsely reporting an incident and interfering with police.
The incident Quiles described in her Nov. 7 complaint was reconstructed by police, who determined that what she said happened wasn’t possible, said Officer Vaughan Dumas, police spokesman.
Quiles originally claimed she was pulled over at Bridgeport and Kerema avenues and the “officer” asked Quiles for her phone number.
After a review of surveillance video and information from an officer who was directing traffic nearby yielded no evidence of a car being pulled over, police determined her story was fabricated, Dumas said. When pressed to explain these inconsistencies, she stopped talking to police and hired a lawyer, Dumas said.
This was the second such case in Milford in recent months.
Kimberly M. Hueffman was sentenced to an accelerated rehabilitation program after she admitted fabricating a story about being pulled over and sexually assaulted by someone impersonating an officer in September. and that she was sexually assaulted.
Hueffman later gave two statements acknowledging that she concocted the entire story.Police Chief Keith Mello said police investigators worked around the clock to solve the Hueffman case, which added up to $15,000 in resources that could have been put to use elsewhere.
There was no word on the cost of the most recent case.
