Marlborough Police make arrest following robbery report

Marlborough – The Marlborough Police Department has released the following statement:

On September 23, 2012 Marlborough Police responded to a reported armed robbery which had occurred on Mount Royal Ave. It was reported by the victim that as he traveled to make a bank deposit for his employer he was stopped by two males on a motorcycle, one of which pointed a handgun at him and then stole the $5,000+ cash deposit he was carrying. The victim made further statements about the suspects including their appearance, the motorcycle, as well as the possibility that another vehicle may be involved. Officers checked the surrounding area and a detective responded as well.

On September 24, 2012 as the investigation continued, the victim made further statements which contradicted his original report. During an interview of the victim, he eventually admitted that he had fabricated the incident and that he had stolen the money himself over the course of a few months. The original reporting victim, Michael Sorrentino, was then arrested and charged with Filing a False Police Report and Larceny Over $250 by Single Scheme.
