TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Police say a Fircrest woman who reported she had been stabbed Monday when she interrupted a burglar made up the story.

Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer told The News Tribune (http://is.gd/9tPQNM ) Thursday that investigators determined the woman stabbed herself and made up the burglar story to cover up a theft from her roommate.

The investigation goes to the Pierce County prosecutor to decide whether to charge the woman.
