28-year-old Dominique Jones from Tampa, Florida called 911 on Monday night and told the cops that a man had just robbed him and stolen his wallet.

His story was kind of flimsy because he couldn't say what the guy looked like or what direction he went, but some detectives and the K-9 unit started investigating anyway. They quickly solved the case when they found Dominique's wallet a few minutes later inside of his own suitcase.

That's when he admitted he'd made up the robbery because he didn't want to go to work that night. He was arrested for filing a false report and misuse of 911.

On the bright side for Dominique, he did miss work that night, and he's still missing it because he's in jail until he posts a $2,000 bond.
