Weird News of the Day: Mexican Teen Fakes Kidnapping, Planned to Use Money for Vaca


As Soto's friends were on their way to collect the money, police stopped and arrested them. The teens immediately outed Soto and told them where she could be found hiding.

When the police showed up to Hidalgo, Soto once again tried to make the story seem true, but had to confess to it being a scam once her friends told the police about the part they played in the fake kidnapping.

According to Mexican police, Soto and her friends will probably be spending some time in jail, but they have not revealed how long.
