A man called Macon police to report he had been robbed only to end up in jail for allegedly lying about it.

The incident happened about 10:30 p.m. Thursday in a house along the 600 block of Pringle Street, according to a police incident report. The responding officer said he noticed the man who called, Shedrick Glover, 62, was intoxicated.

Glover told the officer he was robbed by a woman who had left the scene on foot.

The officer found the woman, and she gave him a story different from Glover’s.

She said she had been drinking heavily with Glover until he “went crazy” and attacked her. The officer wrote in the report he examined the woman and found she had been hit at least once in the head.

The woman said when she tried to leave, Glover removed about $300 from his wallet and hid the cash in his bedroom.

The officer returned to Glover’s house and asked him to repeat his story. It did not change.

Eventually, according to the report, the officer was allowed inside Glover’s bedroom and found $333.00 in cash.

Glover was arrested on a charge of falsely reporting a crime and taken to the Bibb County jail.
