While the Central Intelligence Agency has vast resources and a myriad of clandestine operations, police in North Platte, Nebraska, were probably justified in doubting a Subway employee's claim that he was actually a CIA agent and that the agency would pay back the $502 the restaurant accuses him of taking.
When police and the Subway restaurant's owner confronted Joshua Shores and accused him of putting $502 in his pocket instead of depositing it in the drop safe, Shores tried to explain that he was a CIA agent and the agency had already taken steps to replace the money, the North Platte Bulletin reports.
Unfortunately for Shores, the story did nothing to stop police from arresting him and charging him with felony theft. During his arraignment, Shores told the judge he had been in training with the CIA for three years, the newspaper reports.
Besides a CIA operative, Shores also claims to be a member of one of the most famous families in America. Investigators told the newspaper that Shores also claimed that he was President Bush's son.
If convicted, Shores could face a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
