UPDATE: “Help I’m Kidnapped” Displayed on Vehicle Which Prompted GSP Traffic Stop Was a Prank, NJSP Say

Earlier today, TLS was first to report about a traffic stop that occurred on the GSP, allegedly in response to a sign on the window which read “Help I’m kidnapped.”

NJSP initially told TLS “There was a motor vehicle stop conducted at 2pm at milepost 123.5 in Sayreville. However, no arrests were made.”

However, TLS inquired about the circumstances surrounding the stop, to which State Police responded that it was a prank.

Asked whether there would be any charges, State Police answered “there are no pending charges at this time.”

  1. When asked how the police knew the sign was a prank, a law enforcement official told reporters: “Because the fellow in the front seat with the concealed weapon in his pocket told us so.”
    A second law enforcement official later told reporters that the police initially questioned the fellow lying in the back seat with “the duck tape covering his mouth”.
    “When HE didn’t respond to our questions,” the law enforcement official said, “we approached the nervous-looking fellow in the front seat, and told him to come clean with us, or we’ll lock him up for the night. That’s when he confessed to the prank.”

  2. Spectacular. Now dangerous people can do whatever they want and we’ll be vulnerable when the police won’t be so motivated to step in.

  3. When help is really needed there probably will not be any response. It’s like when you constantly lie. You finally tell the truth and it’s not believed. They should be held accountable. Make them pay or do some time.

  4. They need to charge everyone on volleyball in the prank. It took the officers time they could of been using for other crimes in their district. I don’t find this a funny prank at all after being kidnapped, assaulted and raped this past February. I’m passed they get to get away with it, now when someone is kidnapped the kidnappers will use this here to get a lighter sentence if not get out of it all together.
