Man fakes armed robbery to get out of work, police say

WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WNCN) – A Wake Forest man who told police he was robbed at gunpoint Thursday was actually just trying to get out of work, police said.

Around 9 a.m., officers responded to an armed robbery call from the intersection of Wait Avenue and Highgate Circle.

Raymond Michael McKinstry, 43, told police he was robbed at gunpoint by a man who later ran from the scene.

But investigators found several inconsistencies with McKinstry story, police said.

He told police he made up the robbery to get out of work.

He was charged with filing a false police report.

McKinstry could spend up to 60 days in jail and/or could be fined up to $1,000.
