Monroe County Sheriff's deputies in Hamlin, New York, say a pizza delivery man is facing charges. That after they say he reported a murder to police that never happened.
Deputies say 18-year-old Mason Requa called 911 and told deputies that he had witnessed a homicide at around nine o'clock on Wednesday night.
Requa, they say, gave a detailed description of the incident including descriptions about the suspects, type of weapon used and what clothing the victim was wearing.
Several agencies, including deputies, US Border Patrol and New York State Police searched for close to four hours until, investigators said, Requa admitted telling investigators that he made up the story because he was afraid he would be fired from his job for a late pizza delivery. Requa was charged with Falsely Reporting An Incident.
He is due back in court next Tuesday.
