Probation given to man who falsely reported kidnapping
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – On. Aug. 26, a man who was arrested on suspicion of falsely reporting his children were kidnapped by home invaders was sentenced to three years of probation, according to El Dorado County Superior Court documents.
Adam Roland, 32, pleaded no contest in May to a misdemeanor count of falsely reporting an emergency, according to the documents.
A second misdemeanor count of falsely reporting an emergency and burglary were dropped as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.
Roland will be required to complete an outpatient substance abuse treatment program as part of his sentence, according to documents.
On May 1, Roland told police two men had invaded his home and kidnapped his children. He said the men said they would kill the kids if Roland did not get them OxyContin, according to a statement from police.
Upon further questioning, police determined Roland had made up the kidnapping story and planned to rob the CVS Pharmacy on Emerald Bay Road to settle a debt.
