Man accused of making up robbery and kidnapping

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta police respond to an armed robbery and kidnapping call that turned out to be a fabricated story.

According to an incident report from Valdosta police, a man called the police about a robbery and Friday around 5 p.m. He reported that he was on 1306 Cypress Street and that $600, one black cell phone and one pack of cigarettes were taken.

However, Lt. Aaron Kirk of Valdosta police confirmed Sunday that the story was the work of fiction. He said that after further investigation the man proved to be intoxicated and lost some money, so he made up the incident.
