Reports of Theater Robbery in Mt. Juliet are False

This afternoon around 5:30PM, local media and citizens noticed a post on the social media website Facebook about a robbery that took place at the Providence 14 theater in Mt. Juliet. A robbery did not occur at the theater nor in Mt. Juliet. In addition, there have not been any recent crimes at the theater. It is our understanding that a patron at the theater sent a text message to his wife claiming he was robbed this afternoon. However, he was using figurative language and referring to his spending during the theater trip. He was not actually robbed. His wife then immediately posted on Facebook that he was robbed. Understandably, this prompted inquiries by citizens and local media regarding the factual basis of the post. Everything is fine, and no robbery took place.
