Lori Koehler was the manager of a Hobby Lobby on 120th Avenue, but Broomfield police say the 37-year-old woman’s own hobby is lying. On February 20, the cops responded to a 911 hang-up at the store and found Koehler tied with one arm to some shelving. She said she had been raped – and there were condom wrappers on the floor to prove it, according to reports. But after an investigation, police believe Koehler made the story up, and they arrested her for false reporting. Police also believe Koehler is the person who wrote thirty anonymous derogatory letters to Hobby Lobby employees and executives complaining about her own morals.
Koehler may need mental help, but she is also a Shmuck – our first female Shmuck of the year (interesting in and of itself).
