Police: Chesterfield crash and robbery was made up

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A report of a violent crash and robbery in Chesterfield was all made up by the purported victims, according to Chesterfield Police.

Alvin W. Pegram and Jerome A. Cheatham now face one count each of filing a false report in connection with an alleged robbery on Osborne Road on Wednesday night. The men said a van rammed the back of their vehicle, then two suspects got out, approached them with guns drawn and made off with cash and other items.

Police now say the men sold the items that had been reported stolen and made the robbery report in an attempt to keep the cash.
