Nicholas Gore approached Pacific Grove police two weeks ago with an odd tale.

The 18-year-old said a group of strangers had beaten, robbed and abducted him at gunpoint from the normally sleepy Country Club Gate Shopping Center. The randomness of the purported crime sent shudders through Butterfly Town, USA.

But now police say Gore invented the story to cover up a drug deal gone bad.

Gore was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of making a false report to police. He was cited for the misdemeanor charge and released.
