Rolling the dice

  • Friday, June 7, 2013

Police received a Code 4 call from dispatch that an armed robbery had occurred. They raced to a neighborhood basketball court where some men were playing dice. The victim told dispatchers a man held him up at gun point after losing a game of dice for $170. The victim told police the man also stole his refer, according to the report. He gave a description of the entire group of men and the car they were driving.

When police arrived, however, the victim was nowhere to be found.

Police patrolled the area for the victim but could not fin him, however they came across a group of men and a car matching the original description. They were seated around a table in a nearby backyard.

An officer spoke with the men, and one explained that he knew who probably called to complain on him because they had previous issues with each other over a girl they had in common.

The report said that the alleged victim was mad with the alleged suspect because he spoke to the girl. The suspect said they had been going back and forth all day.

He was questioned about where he had been and he said he had just come back from a restaurant with to-go food. The food was on the table in front of the group.

The complainant was finally spotted and police cleared the scene to go speak to him. They asked him if he knew anything about calling the police. He played dumb at first but then changed his story and said a man named “D” approached him and told him he had just been robbed and asked him to use his cell phone to call the police.

The report said that due to the circumstances, officers believed the alleged victim was lying and the case was closed.
