According to the New York Daily News:
The wild ordeal unfolded after a pair of masked men burst into a Monte Alto home and snatched Rogelio Andaverde, 34, at gunpoint about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, KRGV-TV reported.
His panicked wife called police, who launched a manhunt that lasted several hours until they became curious when they developed no leads.
“I looked at the guys and said, ‘Do you really believe this?’” Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño told The Monitor.
Investigators got a call on Thursday morning that Andaverde had come back home unharmed. He waltzed into his home and told his wife that his captors just let him go.
But soon after the man was taken in for questioning, he admitted that he plotted the abduction so he could get away from home and revel with friends.
“Well, he’s going to party in jail now,” Treviño told the paper. “It’s humorous in a way, but also it’s very serious.”
No, it's just humorous. And sad. Quite frankly, I point the blame finger at his wife. If she loosened the noose every once in a while Rogelio wouldn't have to pull out unreasonable theatrics just to wet his beak.
