TRAVELERS REST, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A Burger King manager is behind bars after police said he faked a robbery at work to get cash for his girlfriend's bond, but his wife saw the robbery and reported it as real.
Travelers Rest police said on June 28 the manager of the State Park Road Burger King reported that as he was leaving work about 1:30 a.m. with the night deposit when he was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot by two men.
Then the alleged suspects took the deposit and fled on foot. There were three witnesses to the robbery, two employees and the manager's wife, police said.
After further investigation and some tips, police said the manager, 36-year-old George Paul Runion, had staged the robbery with the help of two friends.
At the time of the robbery, Runion's girlfriend was in jail and he did not have money to bond her out, according to police chief Lance Crowe.
The men's plan was to split the deposit, which allegedly had about $1,140 in cash, giving Runion enough of the money he needed to bond her out, Crowe said.
But Runion's wife and the witnesses thought the robbery was real and they were in danger, police said.
Runion and his accomplices, 22-year-old Zackery Ivey and 24-year-old John Watts, were arrested on Aug. 29. and each charged with armed robbery.
They each had a bond set at $25,000. Ivey was released on bond on Thursday and two of the three men have confessed since their arrest, Crowe said.
Crowe did not say what charge Runion's girlfriend was in jail on at the time of the alleged robbery.
