Sounds about right............

An Oak Forest man falsely claimed that three men robbed him Dec. 13 at Orland Square Mall because he needed to cover up his spending $200, according to Orland Park police.
Joseph Renardo, 23, of the 5800 block of Charles Lane, was charged with disorderly conduct and filing a false police report.
Police Cmdr. John Keating said Renardo called police about 7:30 p.m., saying three men had robbed him as he was walking to his car in the mall parking lot.
He told police that one of the men had a baseball bat and asked him, “what do you have? Give it to us.” Renardo said he gave the robbers $200 and they walked away, according to police.
Keating said Renardo told police he left the mall and didn’t immediately call them because he had a “prior engagement.” Renardo called about the robbery from his house, and the dispatcher told him to fill out a report at the police station, which he did, Keating said.
He said that during the investigation, Renardo came to the police station for a follow-up interview, in which he admitted fabricating the story because he needed an explanation for $200 he had spent. Renardo did not say what he spent the money on, Keating said.
When contacted by a reporter Thursday, Renardo declined to comment on his arrest.

Am I the only one that thinks Renardo sounds alot like Retardo............................


  1. Johnny,

    You are not alone - but he was probably afraid to fave his wife.

  2. Oh, I'm sure. But he should have thought of that before he spent the money
