(Magna-AP) -- The manager of a Magna All-a-Dollar store has been charged with taking part in the robbery of his own shop.

According to court papers, after the store closed one night in November, two men entered and bound employees with duct tape while they cleaned out the safe. Those men, Jakob Benzon and Jay Hortin, also allegedly threatened the workers with a gun.

Investigators now say store manager Tyler Gardner was in on the heist. All three have been charged with aggravated robbery.
