A Lee County man is jailed after falsely accusing two Lee County Sheriff's deputies of stealing from him.

21-year-old Danny Wiggins later confessed he needed money and thought lying about money being stolen from his truck was a good way to get it.

Wiggins is charged with false report of a crime and giving false statements. He was arrested last week for DUI.

When he picked up his truck he filed a report claiming $160 had been taken from it.

After an internal investigation, deputies questioned Wiggins again and he admitted he lied.
