Minnesota couple released on bond after lying about Loop robbery
CHICAGO — A tourist couple from Minnesota is free on bond after lying about a robbery on Lower Wacker Drive.
Katie Mager, 27, and Ryan Reiersgaard, 27, were arrested and charged after they admitted to fabricating a robbery and falsifying a police report, police said.
They told officers that on Thursday, three men approached them and took their property at knifepoint.
The couple said they had $20,000 worth of personal items stolen, including: a $12,000 engagement ring, a $3,000 suitcase purse, a $2,000 MacBook Air laptop, a $300 suitcase and an $150 iPad Mini.
Mager later admitted she faked the robbery story, and she apologized.
Their next court date is December 14.
