Remember the story about the knife-point robbery at the Madison VFW in the wee hours Sunday? Evidently, the Madison PD has decided the claim was bogus. They have charged Jean McCarty, 55, of Madison with grand theft and false reporting. Says MPD, "It was learned through the course of the investigation that McCarty had fabricated the story of being robbed at knife point while closing the bar early Sunday morning."
Jean McCarty is the VFW manager and is one of the directors of the Licensed Beverage Dealers of South Dakota. She's also a fan of the South Dakota 9-12/Glenn Beck Fan Club. I'll bet she's wishing for smaller government right now.
Update 2010.08.03: McCarty pleads guilty to one count of grand theft, gets out of the false reporting charge, gets 180 days in jail and $1000 in fines. McCarty avoids four years in the penitentiary on the conditions that she pay restitution, seek mental health counseling, accept random searches, and stay away from the VFW, drugs, alcohol, and gambling.
