LANCASTER COUNTY — Police have arrested a 22-year-old Lancaster County man accused of fabricating a robbery and kidnapping story to cover for the fact that he crashed a  vehicle he didn’t own.

Juan Enrique Tamayo Jr., of Millersville, first made the report on August 17, 2018,  according to Manheim Township Police. He allegedly told police he was the victim of a robbery, where he was kidnapped and assaulted.

After a lengthy investigation, police say they determined Tamayo fabricated the entire story to conceal the fact he crashed a car, which he did not own.

Police have arrested Tamayo.
