Clerk's robbery call lands him in Dubuque Co. Jail

Posted:
PEOSTA (KWWL) -

A reported hold-up at a Peosta truck stop turns out to be a hoax but the theft is real.  That's because deputies say a worker there and his roommate orchestrated the whole thing.  The Dubuque Co. Sheriff's Office says deputies were called around 11:30 p.m. Saturday to the Hwy 20 Truck Stop where the worker said he was robbed at gunpoint with the suspect running from the store.  Deputies say it turns out the worker, 25-year-old Chance Lundin and his roommate, 22-year-old Zachary McAndrews, worked together to steal more than $4000 from the truck stop. Both now face theft charges and are in the Dubuque County Jail.
