Facebook post sparks theater robbery scare
Tuesday, May 28, 2013

A Facebook post sparked a scare that the Regal Cinemas 14 in Providence had been robbed Saturday. 

“A robbery did not occur at the theater nor in Mt. Juliet,” said Mt. Juliet Police Department Sgt. Tyler Chandler. 

Chandler said it was the MJPD’s understanding that a patron at the theater sent a text meesage to his wife claiming he was robbed that afternoon. However, he was using figurative language and referring to his spending during the theater trip. His wife posted on Facebook that he was robbed. That sparked calls to Mt. Juliet Police. 

Chandler said there had been no recent crimes at the theater.
