The man who reportedly cried before completing a robbery of a pizza place has been revealed to be a liar.

David Randall Lacey, 33, was intent on robbing a Papa John's restaurant in Helena, Montana when he supposedly broke down and confessed to the cashier he needed money to support his wife and children.

However, it has since been revealed that he has no children in town and that the story was a fabrication, reports the Helena Independent Record.

A police affidavit stated: "David said that when the register was placed on the counter, he realised there was hardly any money.

"At that point, David told the clerk the story about needing money for his wife and kids. David does not have any children in Helena and told me he was referring to his friends' kids, who consider him an uncle."

The till only contained $24.56 (£16).

Lacey left on foot with a large pepperoni pizza, a basket of hot wings and a 20-ounce Pepsi.

He remains in Lewis and Clark County jail with bail set at $25,000 (£16,000).
