HAMPTON, Va. (WTKR) – A Hampton Waffle House employee is now charged after officers say she played an April Fool’s joke on them.
According to WTKR.com, Susan Tinker is charged for lying about a robbery.
Police say around 6 a.m. Monday morning, Tinker called to report the robbery at the restaurant on West Mercury Boulevard.
Police say they got to the scene and spent more than an hour investigating.
While waiting for the manger to get there to review surveillance tape, they figured out there was no robbery. Tinker told police it was all an April Fool’s joke, but officers say this was no laughing matter.
A spokesperson for the Waffle House says they do not tolerate this kind of behavior and Tinker is no longer employed there.
