Hudson Valley Couple Made Up Robbery at Local Store, Police Say
A Hudson Valley couple is accused of making up a robbery at a local business.
On January 2, State Police were sent to a possible robbery that occurred behind the Just-a-Buck on Route 9 in Wappinger.
The alleged victim reported that while bringing the store’s deposit to the bank, she was approached by a man who forcibly stole the deposit envelope containing an undisclosed amount of cash and her cell phone. The suspect then fled the store in an unknown direction and mode of travel.
A police investigated determined that 22-year-old Erica Walker of Fishkill made up the story so her boyfriend, 30-year-old Sean Dixon of Yonkers could take the money, police say.
