CARROLL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A woman is being charged after police say she made a false report about bones discovered under an abandoned trailer.

Carroll County Sheriff Phillip Marshall said the bones were antiquities of archaeologically that two people stole from a building.

The bones were given to Tammy Sculley to use in her fish tank.

Marshall said Sculley got nervous about the bones and made up a story about her dog finding the remains under an abandoned trailer.

Sculley was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with falsely reporting an incident. 

Two additional people are expected to be charged with burglary. 

One person will be charged with receiving stolen property. 

Officials say the bones are not recent, and are currently being tested to determine how old they are.
