Police: 2 men arrested for pretending to be crash victims

June 23, 2015

— Police have arrested two men who they say pretended to be car crash victims in Reno County near Sylvia.

Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder said several Reno County agencies responded to a call Sunday about two victims of what looked to be a fatal accident lying on the side of the road. The Reno County Sheriff's Office said when first responders arrived at the scene, the two men got up and told them it was a prank and left the scene.

Deputies were able to get the suspects' license plate number and track them down.

The district attorney said he intends to seek jail time so as to send a message that people can't pull pranks that involve important resources.

The men face could face charges of making a false report, raising a false alarm and putting obstructions in the road.
