Houston County Robbery Arrest

A Houston County gas station attendant has been arrested for faking a robbery that never happened.

20-year-old Jennifer Givens is charged with theft of property and filing a false report with law enforcement.

Investigators say Givens claimed the gas station in Cowarts where she worked was robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning.

But the woman eventually confessed to taking the money herself to buy drugs.

Sheriff Lamar Glover says most of the stolen money had already been spent by the time the case was solved.
