Sheriff's Office: Pueblo West Abduction A Prank


A feared abduction turned out to be a prank, the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

On Saturday at approximately 7 p.m., the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Walmart on 78 N. McCulloch Blvd in Pueblo West for a possible adult abduction.

A witness in the parking lot notified Walmart security that at approximately 6:10 p.m. they witnessed a man being taken by two other men and placed into a van.

"The investigation determined the young men were playing a prank," Deputy Laurie Kilpatrick told 11 News. She said no further details are available at this time, other than the alleged victim was never harmed.

At this time, the men involved have not been charged.

    Bored little idiots need some community service. Make them pick up trash along Hwy 50. Then we all can laugh.

    Springs police have arrested two men connected to the kidnapping of a teenage girl early Sunday morning. At 3 a.m. police were notified by an acquaintance of the victim that the 16-year-old had been taken against her will by her estranged boyfriend, 25-year-old Miguel Jiminez.. The caller worried she might be in danger. Click here to find out more! Around 5 a.m., Jiminez's vehicle was found near the Sam's Club on 715 South Academy, leading officers to set up a perimeter at the superstore while branching out to the nearby Pine Creek and Windmill apartments to search for the people involved. At this point, evidence indicated that at least one of the suspects left the area with the victim on foot. At 7 a.m., Jiminez and 19-year-old alleged accomplice Alan Mendoza-Para were found at a home on the 4825 Astrozon, which records show is Jiminez's last known address. The victim's whereabouts where still unknown. The victim called her mother at 10:30 a.m. from a 7-Eleven in the area of Astrozon and South Academy. Police have not released any information on her well-being. Jiminez will be charged with kidnapping and felony menacing, while Mendoza-Para will faces accessory charges. Now .. do you believe abduction is fun?
