Police: Man fakes kidnapping so he could party with friends


She told officers two masked gunmen entered their home and took 34-year-old Rogelio Andaverde. About a dozen deputies and a DPS helicopter joined the search. Then, two days later, Andaverde showed up at his home, saying he'd been released.

Well, it turns out it was all a hoax. The gunmen were two of his friends getting him out of the house so they could go party.

Andaverde has been charged with filing a false report. His two gun toting friends may also face charges.
