SYLVIA, Kan. (AP) - Reno County authorities are considering charges against two men accused of pretending to be car crash victims.

District Attorney Keith Schroeder says several Reno County agencies responded to a call Sunday about two accident victims lying on the side of the road near Sylvia. The sheriff’s office says when first responders arrived, the two men got up and told them it was a prank and left the scene.

Deputies got the suspects’ license plate number and are tracking them down. Sgt. Corey Graber says the sheriff’s office expects the two men to face a few charges, including reporting a false crime. He says two aren’t in custody.

The district attorney said he intends to seek jail time to send a message that people can’t pull pranks that involve important resources.
