The big homie, didn’t think this one all the way through.
UK police carried out a major search for a man who told his girlfriend he had been kidnapped – but he was actually lying to stay out late partying. The 32-year-old claimed he was being held hostage and his ‘captor’ would only release him if a 50 pound debt was paid. The woman was ‘beside herself’ and called police after speaking to his ‘kidnapper’ on the phone and receiving a number of text messages. But her boyfriend was in fact enjoying himself at a house party outside of Manchester in the early hours of the morning.
One detective said it was ‘one of the most foolish and irresponsible incidents’ she had encountered. After the alarm was raised, more than a dozen officers carried out house-to-house enquiries, checked CCTV and analysed mobile phone data in an attempt to find him. A number of properties were searched and a man was arrested on suspicion of kidnap. But he was later released when he admitted it was a ‘ruse’ to allow his friend to stay out longer. Greater Manchester Police then tracked down the man at the party shortly before 1.30am on Saturday.
