Alleged Carjacking Victim In Jail For Lying To Police

Posted December 7, 1996 12:00 a.m. EST

— Police say the man who told them he was the victim of a carjacking lied about it.

Wednesday night, John Kaczmarek told police someone held him at gunpoint and took off with his car.

Police say they were suspicious right from the start, and Friday night, they got a break in the case.

Police say that in his interview with them, Kaczmarek confessed to the crime. He was arrested and placed in jail Friday.

Police believe that Kaczmarek may be using an alias, because they did a background check and found out that several insurance companies had false claims filed by him. The claims were not all under the same name, but the claims were connected by the same fingerprints.

At this time, Kaczmarek is still being held in Wake County Jail unti he can provide police with a birth certificate, passport, or some type of proof of real identification.
