A Georgia Christian school teacher has been charged for solicitation of sodomy after local authorities looked into a robbery and kidnapping that was spawned from a rumor ‘circulating around Facebook.’ 

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office arrested 56-year-old Christopher Keys and are investigating the robbery that he initially reported on May 19. 

They shared in a Thursday press release that the office had received an inquiry about a rumored ‘carjacking and kidnapping’ that took place on Wednesday at the CVS Pharmacy on 1600 block of Forest Hill Drive. 

Bibb County investigators determined that no such incident took place at the CVS but had been working on an incident with the same victim, identified as Keys. 

According to an incident report, deputies met with Keys at the Regency Inn & Suites for calls about an armed robbery. 

Keys claimed that he had been in the motel when he heard a knock at his door. Once he opened the door, two masked men robbed him of his wallet, house, truck and work keys, and a cell phone. One of the men was armed, Keys told deputies. 

They were investigating a rumor of a carjacking at a CVS but determined that no such incident took place. But according to an incident report, deputies met with Keys at the Regency Inn & Suites for calls about an armed robber on March 19

He told authorities that he was able to get his cell phone back only after a stranger retrieved it from a nearby Walmart parking lot. 

Keys explained to deputies that he was supposed to meet a man in his hotel room, having responded to an ad on Craigslist. 

An investigation revealed that Keys had been frequently visiting the hotel since January. 

At the time of the initial report, Keys allegedly told deputies that he didn’t want the details of the robbery to get out. He also told them not to speak with his family.

Keys is said to have told deputies that he was going to tell his father that he had been kidnapped from another location and brought to the motel, according to the release. 

Keys is a Bible youth pastor in the area and a ‘former’ teacher for the Tattnall Square Academy, a private Christian school in Macon.

He was listed on the school’s website, but has since been removed – only appearing on a link for the school’s blog. A spokeswoman for the school referred to him as a ‘former teacher.’

‘Tattnall Square Academy was only recently made aware of the charges against our former employee, Christopher Keys,’ Alyssa Huntt, director of communications and public relations, explained to The Telegraph. ‘We have no comment or information regarding the matter about which he is accused.’ 

In the Facebook post obtained by LGBTQ Nation, the neighbor’s post revealed that Keys accused two black men of robbing him.
