WAYNE - Police have charged the owner of a Wayne prom gown shop who has drawn consumer complaints with filing a false burglary report.

Sixteen customers have claimed in the past two weeks that Red Carpet Prom dress shop took their money and failed to deliver gowns.

The store's owner, Patricia Dowling, filed a burglary report last week, claiming $600 and 40 dresses were stolen. Police reportedly say the store's security cameras captured Dowling taking the dresses off the rack.

The charge carries a penalty of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
