Florida Man Stages Home Burglary To Avoid Going To Work

A Florida man may have gotten out of going to work after staging a fake burglary at his home, but the place he ended up is probably worse — jail.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Dwayne Yeager on Monday morning informing them that his house had been broken into.

“My door’s open, my windows to my son’s bedroom are wide open,” Yeager said in his call. “My TV’s in there on the ground.”

The 31-year-old even had a suspect in the burglary.

“On the corner, right when I pulled up, a white, kind of little Honda Civic pulling away,” he said. “White, it had kind of like a black fender.”

When neighbors provided deputies with information that indicated Yeager was lying, he was “confronted with the discrepancies” and then confessed to faking the entire thing.

“He stated his wife was adamant that he go to work and he didn’t want to,” according to the arrest report.

Yeager was hit with one count of providing false information to law enforcement and released on $500 bail.

In addition to his employer likely not being too pleased with the situation, Yeager’s neighbors also weren’t thrilled.

“That’s just absolutely ridiculous,” neighbor Doris Morell told Bay News 9. “I mean, who would do that? That’s just absurd.”
