MPPD: Teen charged with filing false armed robbery report

 An 18-year-old man was arrested last week after filing a false armed robbery report to Mt. Pleasant police, according to officials. 

Officers say Gage Underkoffler met with Mt. Pleasant police on December 7, and claimed he was robbed by two men at knifepoint. He reportedly told police the suspects took $100 from his wallet before making their way down Rifle Range Road. 

Police say an investigation into the alleged robbery revealed Underkoffler made the story up. 

The suspect was arrested last Friday and charged with filing a false police report.
