UNM: Man lied about attempted robbery on campus


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – There was a false alarm at the University of New Mexico Tuesday after campus police received a call about an attempted robbery at the Casas Del Rio dorms.

The man, who was not a student, claimed he was attacked by two men with black hoodies in the elevator at the apartment complex. But when police looked at the security video, they didn’t see an altercation.

He later admitted he made the whole thing up.

Police have been on high alert near campus lately after the unsolved murder of a student.
