RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Turns out Spider-Man did not rob a Raleigh motel last week.
Raleigh police have arrested the night clerk at the motel and accused her of staging the holdup with a friend dressed as the crime fighting hero. Twenty-year-old Lindsay Nichole Noble of Raleigh is charged with embezzlement.
Police say they found a Spider-Man mask and small amounts of money in two plastic bags when their searched her home.
Police say Noble told officers she had been robbed at gunpoint on Friday. An arrest warrant says Noble gave a man wearing a Spider-Man mask and gloves money "automatically."
Twenty-four-year-old Ownie Rasheed Henry is charged with aiding and abetting embezzlement. Arrest records show they lived together. It was not clear if they have attorneys.
