Sure you can. "Officer, those aren't my drugs". Ever heard of someone being prosecuted for saying this? We would need a full-time "liar's court" to prosecute all the liars.

False reporting is a crime, as in completely falsifying a police report.

The FBI however has much more prosecution power in this regard. They typically throw this charge at someone they would like to indict but don't have anything else on them.
