Shoreline man reports fictitious home invasion robbery to 911

Thursday, December 22, 2011

An 18 year old Shoreline man was booked into jail this morning after detectives discovered that he lied when he called 911 to report that he’d been the victim of a home invasion robbery.

On December 21, 2011, shortly after 3:00 pm, the Shoreline man called 911 to report that two masked men forced their way into his aunt’s home where he’d been staying. Once inside, the men ordered him to the ground at gun point and then proceeded to burglarize the home. Prior to leaving, the “suspects” forced him into a chair where he was bound and gagged.

Shoreline Police and the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes responded to the 911 call. As a result of their investigation they found that the man had pawned his aunt’s property and then used the robbery story to explain the theft.

The suspect was booked into jail for investigation of false reporting and theft.
