Store Manager Charged With Faking Robbery

A convenience store manager has been arrested after deputies say she staged an armed robbery last month.

Ruth Brunick of Holly Ridge is charged with larceny by employee, felony conspiracy and filing a false report to police.

Onslow County deputies say on August 18th the woman claimed she had been assaulted and robbed shortly after opening the Handy Mart on Highway 210 in Sneads Ferry.

The 34-year-old's bond has been set at $12,000 and she has a first court appearance Thursday morning.

    sad thing is she is the mother of three kids one is 11 years old.im sure they are devistated by this news regardless if they believe her or the evidence it certainly has to be very hard for a kid to know there mom has done something like this. i feel horrible that they have to go through this.maybe the onslow county judicial system will make for certain that she has a roof over her head and food in her stomach and im sure the kids dad will do the same for them.

    Its sad for quiet a few reasons really, one our economy is so bad that people are having to steal to make it.. two, in this report i didn't see anything about Obama mentioned, but of course someone had to do it, racism is a ugly thing, it seems as if we should be past this but it shows that African Americans are just as prejudice against whites as whites are against African Americans. This story is about a woman that stole money... nothing else.

    Wow I didnt know obama was really turning this country into racists! Why do people have to make all this about race? A woman got caught doing something wrong and deserves her punishment. Why turn into an issue of color?

    when she faked this robbery, she didn't reaiize how this would affect others- I work early morning hours and I was scared to go to work for the first time in 20 years-she deserved to be caught.

    They're so good at this; stealing and blaming others for it. Idiot just like the rest of them that lie. And they call Obama a liar. Seems they don't want to work for anything just like the rest of the criminals around here. Sad day for her kind.

    I suppose that she didn't know that the store would have video that showed it was fake. If that is the case, if not how do they know it was fake? It would not suprise me if was fake, however how did they find out?
