LAYTON -- Police arrested a Layton convenience store clerk who claimed to have been robbed. They say he staged the incident.

According to the Standard-Examiner, 29-year-old clerk Devin Drca told Layton police he left the Maverik convenience store at 849 E. Gordon Ave. around 11 a.m. Monday to make a bank deposit. He claimed when he bent to pick up a wallet near his car, a man kicked him in the face and knocked him unconscious.

Drca, who had a lump on the side of his head, said the deposit bag was missing when he came to.

Investigators say more questioning revealed Drca had injured himself and hid the deposit bag nearby.

He was booked into the Davis County Jail for theft and making a false statement to police.
