To Avoid Going to Work, Florida Man Stages Fake Burglary

crime sceneWhat to the what?

You read that right — a man in Florida must not have wanted to go to work in a really big way when he staged a burglary to get out of the daily grind.

Sure, we all have days when we don’t want to get out of bed but to the point of staging a fake burglary leaves us speechless. Why not just call out sick?

According to local station KSDK.com, Dwayne Yeager’s currently out on $500 bond and facing charges of lying to deputies based on staging a break-in to avoid going to work.

According to deputies, Yeager called the cops after pulling into his driveway and stating a robbery had occurred at his home.

Per the local station, here’s an excerpt from his 911 call:

Caller: My door’s wide open, my windows to my son’s bedroom are wide open. My TVs in there on the ground.

Dispatcher: Did you see anybody when you came in or is anything missing that you you can see?

Caller: I called y’all right away. All I see is the front-door wide open. Called my wife and I asked her, we did go out the front door, right? She said yes.

Dispatcher: Did you see any vehicles driving away when you were pulling up or anything like that?

Caller: On the corner, right when I pulled up, a white kind of little Honda Civic pulling away. White, it had kind of like a black fender.

Here’s the weird thing — when deputies arrived they said there weren’t any forces of entry. Realizing things didn’t add up, they confronted Yeager who mentioned he didn’t realize he could have time behind the slammer for staging a crime.

A neighbor ended up telling a local reporter, “To me, it would have been easier just to go to work. Instead, he got a ride to jail.”
