Albany - - An Albany restaurant manager who told police he was robbed is in jail. Police say he made up the story and may have staged a fake robbery. 

Twenty year old Christopher Morman claimed he was robbed at Firehouse Subs on Dawson Road on November 11th. He told officers a man he didn't know walked in with a gun, ordered him on the ground, demanded money, then ran off.

Police charged Morman with making a false report and theft by deception. Now, police are looking for the other person involved.  

"Were just hoping that citizens who see the surveillance video will be able to help us get a good identity of that second suspect," says Phyllis Banks-Whitley.

Surveillance video shows a man dressed in black walking into the restaurant. Shortly afterward, you see him running away. 

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 436-TIPS.
