Report of armed robbery at Casey’s was fake, police say

February 7, 2012

A report of an armed robbery Friday afternoon at Casey’s General Store was determined to be a hoax.

Police received a call that someone was robbing the store along U.S. Highway 24-40 and had a weapon, but it was a false report. The call could not be traced, Tonganoxie Police Chief Jeff Brandau said.

Tonganoxie police, Leavenworth County Sheriff’s officers and Kansas Highway Patrol officials responded to the convenience store.

School officials with the Tonganoxie school district placed USD 464 schools under lockdown at the time of the situation.

Giving a false police report is a misdemeanor, Brandau said.

I heard that it wasn't a false report.... I heard that it was actually the Basehor Casey's and law enforcement were sent to the wrong location. Could be wrong, that is just what I heard.
