A Facebook post alleging that a man’s image was captured on video robbing The Spot liquor store on west Beacon Street is unfounded, police and store officials said.
The post, which included a man’s photo, claimed that the man was “possibly armed and dangerous” and that a $450 reward had been posted.
Danial Zahid Ghafoor of The Spot responded to the post on Facebook saying he understood “we all like to prank our friends but stuff like this can ruin a person or any business’s reputation. This is not real. We definitely did not get robbed.”
Chief of Police Grant Myers confirmed that no robbery had been reported to authorities.
