Police: arrests in phony robbery report
A woman who said she was robbed while trying to deposit cash for her employer has been arrested -- along with two other men -- for allegedly faking the holdup, Prince William County police said Friday.
On Nov. 13, police said, Kimberly Danis Palma Olivares, 22, of Woodbridge, reported that she'd been robbed at an automatic teller machine outside the BB&T Bank branch at Mapledale Plaza in Dale City.
Palma Olivares claimed she'd been depositing receipts from the McDonald's where she worked when a man pushed her to the ground around 1:13 p.m. and took her deposit bag, Officer Jonathan Perok said.
But police investigated further and determined that her "robber" was actually a friend, Christopher Jermaine Aiken, 28, of no fixed address.
Police allege that Aiken then gave the proceeds to Anthony Lamar Hyter II, 27, of Woodbridge, who reportedly is Palma Olivares's boyfriend.
Palma Olivares and Aiken were both ordered held without bond. Palma Olivares was charged with embezzlement, conspiring to commit a felony and filing a false police report.
Aiken was charged with robbery. Hyter was charged with grand larceny and conspiring to commit a felony and is being held on a $10,000 bond.
