A 20-year-old pizza delivery driver in Orange was, allegedly, just hungry and in need of some cash.
The driver, who went to police last weekend complaining he had been robbed while delivering pizza on Friday, September 27 around 11pm, has been arrested and charged by police for allegedly making up the story surrounding the robbery.
Police called for any potential witnesses to the incident after the driver told them he had driven out to the semi-rural setting of Canobolas Road to deliver pizzas.
The driver also told police he had knocked on the door of the residence and, when there was no reply, walked back to the vehicle.
The accused told police as he got to his vehicle someone stepped out of the darkness and robbed him of the pizzas and the money he had on him to deliver change.
However at the time he was unable to provide police with a description of the alleged assailant.
Orange detectives investigating the alleged robbery arrested the 20-year-old driver on Wednesday.
He will face Orange Local Court on the charge of false representation resulting in a police investigation and stealing property as a clerk or servant.
Police have granted the man conditional bail.
He will appear in Orange Local Court in early November to face the charges.
