Store employees arrested after 'fake' robbery

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Two men are charged with lying to police about getting robbed.

Cadare Bonner and Donkier Morgan told police that two masked men held them at gunpoint last Thursday night after they got off work at Sonic.

Investigators now believe the workers either set up the crime or made up the whole thing.

"We are going to be reviewing the video tape of the building and the surrounding area to see what else we can come up with," said Americus Interim Police Chief Herman Lamar.

Bonner and Morgan are charged with theft by taking, making false statements, and false report of a crime.

Each are being held on a $7,500 bond.
