Man found bound with belt faked his own kidnapping to get out of work

(WHDH) — A man who was found bound with a belt and had a bandana stuffed in his mouth told police that he faked his own kidnapping in an effort to get out of going into work, authorities said.

Brandon Soules, 19, of Arizona, was arrested last week on a charge of false reporting, according to the Coolidge Police Department.

Officers responding to the area of 1st Street and Northern Avenue in Coolidge around 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 10 spoke with Soules, who claimed two masked men had kidnapped him, knocked him unconscious, and drove him around before ditching him, police said.

After conducting an extensive investigation, police say they determined that Soules’ story was fabricated.

Soules walked back his initial claims during a follow-up interview with police, allegedly stating that he “made up the story as an excuse to get out of work.”

1. Wouldn't it have been a lot easier just to call in sick?

2. "I'm sick", "the dog ate my security badge", "flat tire", "father's funeral...yes, again", ...

I'm guessing this guy has burned through all the usual excuses and is moving on to the truly creative.

If I were kidnapping someone, the first thing I would think of is to buy a banana, to shut the victim up.

3. Used to know a guy who said his initial reaction was joy when he thought he had cancer; no work!

He didn’t have cancer but he did quit that job and moved on to another job which, although it paid less, was much less stressful for him. Actually, it worked out very well in the end.
