A Jenks man was placed under arrest earlier this week after police found that he had reported a false armed robbery.

Michael Moore, 23, was booked Tuesday afternoon at the Tulsa County Jail on a charge of filing a false report. Moore allegedly reported that he was the victim of an armed robbery with a handgun back in March.

According to a Tulsa Police officer's report, officers responded to the scene around the 5700 block of E. 108 St. and assisted Moore during the investigation. Detectives later learned that Moore's incident was a "marijuana transaction where the victim lost an ounce of marijuana."

Investigators also determined that no gun was used by the suspect in the alleged crime. It wasn't until one week later that Moore admitted to detectives that he lied.

Moore is now being held on bond and due back in court next week.
