Couple accused of fake Domino’s robbery

A Somerset woman and her boyfriend are expected in court on Tuesday to answer charges that they faked a robbery at a Domino’s Pizza in order to steal money. Jacqueline Eaton, 19, who works as a manager at the Domino’s in Somerset, reported to police Dec. 22 that four hooded and masked robbers carrying firearms entered the store about 11 p.m. and forced her at gunpoint to tell them the combination to the store safe, according to Somerset police. Eaton told police the robbers then tied her to a rack and made off with just over $1,000. A delivery driver found Eaton tied up, police said. After investigating her claims, police arrested Eaton and her boyfriend, Arthur Pereira, 24, also of Somerset, accusing the pair of staging the robbery in order to steal money. Eaton and Pereira, who are set to be arraigned in Fall River District Court, face charges of larceny, 10 counts of breaking and entering, and conspiracy, with Eaton facing an additional charge of filing a false police report.
