Auburn Clerk Stabs Himself, Robs Own Store

An Auburn man is behind bars, accused of stealing from the gas station where he worked, and stabbing himself to cover it up.

Donald Malott, 40, is charged with theft of property and false reporting to police. Malott originally reported Monday that he was stabbed and robbed of an undisclosed amount of money from the Dean Road Chevron in Auburn.

When he was treated and released for the stab wound, investigators determined it was self-inflicted.
