Police were called Sunday night after a manager of the KFC on 3rd Street staged a fake robbery in order to take money.

Fellen Hayes, 24, was arrested after police say she conspired with a man named "Ira" to make her theft look like a robbery. These events occurred shortly after noon. 

She initially called police saying that a tall black male had approached her and taken the store's deposit bag at gunpoint. The bag held $1,300.

She told police she only had the bag outside because she was waiting on her cousin to pick her up and take her to the bank. At first, she said this was when the robbery took place. 

However, Ms.

Hayes decided to confess while she was being interviewed by police.

Ms. Hayes was charged with theft over $1,000 and criminal conspiracy. Bond was set at $3,500.

Roy Exum: Never Disturb The Dead

I’ve got too many things in my life that scare me so I’ve always been real leery of “unnecessary fear.” A guy named Terry wanted to teach me how to catch a live rattlesnake one time but had a tough time telling me what exactly to do with the angry serpent when the time came to let it go. I have the same view of these paranormal societies where otherwise sane people go around looking ... (click for more)
