BRANDON (FOX 13) -

A Brandon man's elaborate trick to get out of going to work landed him in trouble with the law.

Dwayne Yeager called Hillsborough County deputies claiming someone broke into his home and ransacked it.

Once deputies arrived, they realized his story didn't add up.

Yeager eventually admitted he staged the burglary to avoid going to work.

He was charged with filing a false police report and taken to jail.

He has since been released.
