Forced at gun point
Man accused of faking kidnapping to party with friends
All Rogelio Andaverde wanted was to get out of the house and have a few beers with his buddies.
So Tuesday afternoon, the 34-year-old Edinburg man created an excuse to sneak away: He staged his own kidnapping.
According to a release from the Hildalgo County Sheriff's Office, Andaverde was with his wife, Maria Hernandez, in their home off F.M. 2812 in rural Northeast Edinburg when about 10:30 p.m. two men wearing masks and toting guns forced their way inside — and made off with Andaverde.
Sheriff Guadalupe Trevino said Hernandez called authorities right away, "petrified" after seeing what she thought was her husband's abduction. [...]
Mid-morning on Thursday, Andaverde returned home, telling his wife he'd been released.
A follow-up investigation revealed he had staged the kidnapping to "spend time with his friends and party."
