KENNEWICK, Wash., Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Police in Washington state said a Cinnabon employee who claimed to have been robbed of a deposit bag faked the crime to pocket the cash.

Kennewick Police said Mirella Lorena Garza, 31, told investigators a man confronted her Friday in the non-public hallway behind the Cinnabon at the Columbia Center Mall and secured her hands with zip ties before fleeing with the deposit bag filled with the store's receipts, KNDO-TV, Yakima, Wash., reported Wednesday.

Police said Garza has admitted fabricating the story of the robbery to keep the money for herself.

Investigators have not revealed the amount of cash in the bag.

Garza was taken to the Benton County Jail on a charge of second degree theft.
