Abduction report turns out to be a hoax

Two Grimshaw men are facing charges after Grande Prairie RCMP was alerted to a possible kidnapping last night, that turned out to be a hoax.

Police say they received a call around 6:40 p.m. from someone who reported seeing a man in the back of a U-Haul with his hands bound and a bag over his head.

Shortly after 8, the vehicle was found in the west end, where two men and a woman were taken into custody.

Police say they believe that the accused were taking pictures while acting out the abduction.
