Hackettstown Man Accused of Lying About Armed Robbery

Police Investigated Man’s Claim That He Was Robbed by Taxi Driver in Hackettstown, New Jersey

Robbery Lawyers Hackettstown NJA Hackettstown man has been charged with a crime for allegedly lying about being the victim of an armed robbery. The suspect is Alfonzo Xi Tzib, a 33-year-old man from Hackettstown in Warren County, New Jersey. According to authorities, Tzib claimed that he was held up at gunpoint at 2:42 a.m. on November 23, 2017 outside the QuickChek store located on Mountain Avenue in Hackettstown.

Tzib contacted local police and said that he received a ride home from a Dover restaurant. Tzib reportedly told law enforcement that the man who gave him the ride identified himself as a taxi driver. The driver, said Tzib, used a silver handgun to rob him when the vehicle pulled up to the convenience store in Hackettstown, NJ. Tzib provided police with a description of the driver: he was said to be a tall, thin Hispanic man. Tzib also gave detectives a description of the motor vehicle: a silver Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Grand Marquis.

Criminal Charges for Lying About Armed Robbery in Hackettstown, NJ

Hackettstown police investigated Tzib’s claims of having been robbed and eventually determined that Tzib was lying about the crime. Instead, alleges law enforcement, Tzib was heavily intoxicated on the night in question and actually found the money that he told police had been stolen. As a result, Tzib has been charged with a crime for creating a false public alarm. After being arrested and charged, Tzib made an appearance in court and was then released from police custody. He will await charges in court – unless the case is resolved prior to trial through either a dismissal or a plea deal with prosecutors.

Initially, Hackettstown police investigated Tzib’s robbery claims and searched for a suspect. If the robbery had occurred, the culprit likely would have been charged with crimes such as armed robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. All of these offenses are classified as felonies and carry severe penalties that include prison time, as well as a mandatory minimum term of incarceration on the gun charges.
