A Largo man made up that he was robbed of $1500 in order to pay off his wife's drug dealer.
Edmund Theodore Lovesky told he was robbed at gun point at Regions Bank in Largo around 8:20 a.m. on August 3.
The 53-year-old told officers that he was taken from his apartment, put into a van and forced to withdraw $1500 at gun point from the ATM at Region Bank's drive thru, according to the arrest report.
