ABC News reports:
A Florida man has been arrested after he reportedly called 911 and claimed he was robbed, all so that he could get out of going to work for the day.
Brian Anderson, 32, of Dundee, called 911 to report an armed robbery near the intersection of Highway 27 and Lincoln Avenue. He told 911 dispatchers that two unknown suspects carrying a gun, stole money, his necklace and his phone from him.
Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office quickly responded with Air and K-9. When they arrived on scene, deputies figured out the robbery never actually happened and Anderson confessed that he made up the story. He told them he didn’t want to show up for his 11 a.m. shift at Hardees where he works.
