Cary Teens Charged in False Kidnapping Claim

Posted March 15, 2000 6:00 a.m. EST

— Charges have been filed against a 13-year-old girl and her 16-year-old brother after they admitted lying about a kidnapping attempt March 5.

Cary Police have not released information on the charges against the girl because she is a minor.

Her 16-year-old brother is charged with one count of filing a false police report and two counts of obstructing and delaying a police officer. All three are misdemeanors.

Cary police say charges are pending against the 21-year-old Raleigh man the girl had set up a meeting with. That meeting ultimately led to the false report.
