They didn’t even hire a fake robber. 

For the second time this month, a restaurant manager admitted to staging the robbery of his or her own store. First it was a combination KFC and Taco Bell, and this week, it’s Chick-fil-A.

The manager, Joseph Scott Kallatch, contacted police to report that he had been beaten up by two assailants who then forced him to open the store’s safe. The two robbers, according to Kallatch, escaped with nearly $2,800. 

However, during police questioning, Kallatch quickly crumbled and admitted that he had arranged the robbery with Michael Frederick Berstecher, an employee at the store.

“Cops then called Berstecher and requested that he come back to the store and he returned a short time later with $2,722, which he said was stolen from the safe,” according to The Reporter.

Kallatch and Berstecher, both 20 years old, are awaiting preliminary hearings for charges including felony assault and making false reports to law enforcement.
