Two gas station clerks in Georgia are facing legal troubles after allegedly orchestrating and executing a fake robbery at work, where one of them played the role of the assailant and the other acted as the victim.
Around 12:10 AM on January 21, someone notified the authorities about an alleged attempted armed robbery at a Shell gas station that happened moments before they called. Officers from the Duluth Police Department headed to the address to investigate.
When they went inside, they reported that one of the employees was shaking and visibly distressed. They asked him what had happened, and the man reportedly said someone holding a knife came into the store and assaulted him. He said he was hit in the face and knocked out, and when he came to, he saw people stealing money out of the register. It was estimated that they left with $5,000.
