A Macon youth pastor told police he was kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint by two Black men in a hotel room.
Christopher Keys called 911 to report an armed robbery at the Regency Inn motel on Eisenhower Parkway on May 19.
Keys, who is also a teacher, initially said he heard a knock at the door. When he opened it, two armed Black males wearing face masks robbed him of his wallet, $70 in cash and a cellphone at gunpoint.
After some questioning, Keys finally admitted he stretched the truth a little bit. He said he routinely solicited sex from male prostitutes on Craigslist.com.
An employee said Keys was a regular at the hotel. According to the police report, Keys said he “liked to play around” with men, but he was married to a woman.
He pleaded with police not to tell his family about his extracurricular activities.
Keys’s cellphone was found in a nearby Walmart parking lot and returned to him.
Sheriff’s deputies charged Keys with solicitation of sodomy. The investigation into the armed robbery continues.
