Police say a robbery at a Middletown fast-found restaurant was an inside job. Middletown police have arrested 28-year-old Talia Wright and 23-year-old Laroya Buck in the robbery Oct. 28 at the Taco Bell restaurant where both worked as managers.

According to police, Wright reported she was robbed at gunpoint by a masked man while she was taking the daily deposits to the bank. Investigators, however, found inconsistencies in statements by Wright and Buck.

Police say the women later admitted staging the robbery and splitting the proceeds with a third person, who has not been identified. Wright and Buck are charged with theft and conspiracy.
