WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Police say a 19-year-old man is behind bars after falsely reporting that he was robbed at his kiosk at the Citadel Mall in West Ashley Wednesday night.

The Charleston Police Department charged 19-year-old Hasan Mungo with filing a false felony police report, conspiracy to commit a felony and breach of trust with fraudulent intent.

Authorities also charged Mungo's friend, 21-year-old Cavin Eric Lavon Coleman, with conspiracy to commit a felony.

Police officials say an investigation revealed that Mungo had made up a story about being robbed at his business at the mall, and that Mungo and Coleman conspired to steal from the business. 

Mungo originally told police that he was closing the Gold Buyers of America around 9:20 p.m. when an unknown black male walked up beside him and asked if the business was still open.

Investigators say Mungo reported that the suspect struck him in the face and grabbed a deposit bag containing the day's deposit.

Mungo told police that the suspect then ran out of the emergency double doors directly across from the kiosk.

Mungo and Coleman were locked up at the Al Cannon Detention Center. Police are continuing the investigation.
