BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) – A Benton man has been arrested for fabricating a story.
According to the Benton Police Department, 30-year-old Akerion Warren was arrested and charged with Filing a False Report, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia after police were called to the Cedarwood Inn on report of an aggravated robbery that took place around 12:22 p.m. Monday.
Police said Warren told them a person had walked into his room and robbed him at gunpoint, but further investigation revealed and no such thing had happened.
Officers also explained that the narcotic-related charges stem from a pipe found in his possession that is commonly used to smoke illegal drugs and from a substance found that is suspected methamphetamine.
