Last week, 34-year-old Rogelio Andaverde of Edinburg, Texas wanted to go out drinking with his friends.  His wife, Maria Hernandez, wanted him to stay home.  So he came up with the perfect plan.

He had his friends put on MASKS and STORM into the house with GUNS . . . then “kidnap” him.  They grabbed him, threw him in their car, and drove off to go drinking.

Apparently none of them realized that Maria would NOT take it as a joke.  She called the cops, who launched an all-out manhunt.  They sent out a HELICOPTER, and at least a DOZEN officers to search for him.  But they couldn’t find him.

The next morning, Rogelio walked into his house, and told his wife the kidnappers had shown him mercy and let him go.

He might’ve THOUGHT that would be the end of it . . . but it wasn’t.  The cops kept investigating and figured out he’d staged the entire thing.

So now Rogelio has been arrested and charged with making a false report to the police, which is a Class B misdemeanor.  He’s looking at up to a $2,000 fine and six months in prison . . . plus whatever his wife does to him.

His friends who kidnapped him weren’t charged.
