Worker accused of helping fake Altoona robbery

~ALTOONA, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an employee plotted with a man to fake a robbery at a fast-food restaurant in the Des Moines suburb of Altoona.
 
     An Altoona police news release identified the employee as 19-year-old Edis Gracanin, of Des Moines. Gracanin is charged with conspiracy, theft and making false reports. Twenty-one-year-old Andrew Potter, of Knoxville, is charged with conspiracy and theft.
 
     Gracanin had told officers on Monday that a gunman demanded cash and punched him before driving away from the Burger King on Adventureland Drive. But Altoona police detective Jason Ferguson says Gracanin and Potter had plotted and faked the crime.
 
     Public phone listings for Gracanin and Potter couldn't be found. Online court records don't list the names of their attorneys.
