Texas Man Who Claimed He Was Robbed Spent The Cash At Topless Bar

LA FERIA (February 21, 2013)--A South Texas man admitted that he concocted a story about being robbed of $1,000 because he didn't want his wife to learn he spent the money at a topless bar, police said.

The man received a tax refund recently and decided to spend the money Wednesday at the bar in La Feria.

Later he called police and reported that men armed with assault weapons had taken the cash.

Officers searched for the robbers and then questioned the man a second time, discovering inconsistencies in his story.

Jesus Mata, 21, of San Benito was arrested Thursday and charged with filing a false report.
