GREENWOOD, S.C. (WSPA) – A Greenwood woman who reported that she had been robbed has been accused of setting up the entire incident.
The Greenwood Police Department responded to First Citizens Bank Wednesday night around 11:20 p.m. after a woman reported she had been robbed.
Police identified the woman as 23-year-old Alancia Goode.
Goode told officers she was a manager at a nearby McDonald’s and she was making a night deposit before going home from work. She told investigators two men wearing dark clothing had stolen the money and run away.
After investigating the incident, police determined that Goode had allegedly set up the robbery.
Officers charged Goode, 19-year-old Christopher Hackett and 17-year-old Rayquan Chamberlain with armed robbery.
Both Hackett and Chamberlain were assigned $50,000 bonds in court Thursday. The judge denied bond for Goode, who had been out on bond from previous charges.
Police said this case was very unusual.
“You have the typical setup where somebody buys drugs,” Sgt. Jonathan Link said. “They show up to get the drugs, they get robbed. That’s fairly common, unfortunately.”
“This kind of thing… it’s fairly uncommon,” he continued.
Other charges may be forthcoming, according to officers.
The incident is still under investigation by the Greenwood Police Department.
