Euless pair made false claims of home takeover, police say

EULESS — Two Euless residents were arrested Monday, accused of falsely telling authorities that killers had taken over their house.

David Robbins, 27, and Amanda Sachse, 26, were in the Euless Jail on suspicion of public intoxication, making a false report and possession of a controlled substance, said Euless police spokesman Lt. John Williams. Bail had not been set as of late Monday.

About 8 a.m. Monday, Sachse ran about a quarter-mile from her father’s house in the 100 block of Oak Lane to Fire Station No. 1, 201 E. Ash Lane, Williams said. She told officials there that people had invaded her home, taken her husband and were threatening to murder everybody, he said.

Police responded by sending about a dozen officers to the home, where they found Robbins outside, Williams said. Robbins told officers that there were killers in the house.

Officers set up a perimeter and called the homeowner — Sachse’s father — who was inside the house and said there was nothing wrong, Williams said. The homeowner let officers sweep the home, and no threats were found, Williams said.

“We have to treat everything like it’s real,” he said.

Police said they suspect that Robbins and Sachse were on drugs during the hourlong ordeal. Robbins’ criminal history includes misdemeanor convictions for possession of marijuana and failure to identify and a felony conviction for grave robbery, according to Tarrant County court records.
