College student charged after faking hostage situation

A 24-year-old Kingston man has been arrested after allegedly attempting to convince his parents he had been taken hostage.

On June 14, 2018 Kingston Police attended a local college to check on the well-being of a male student. He had been reported missing by his parents after they received a text message demanding a large sum of money if they wished to see him again. The male was not found at the school and the investigation led to a local hotel where he was located alone and well.

The male was arrested by Kingston Police and transported to police headquarters where he was later released on conditions with a future court date. He has been charged with public mischief.
