Teen says Pinterest inspired prank idea
ROGERS, ARK. (AP) | A northwest Arkansas teenager thought it would be funny to text a random phone number saying she hid a body, but the joke backfired.
Of all the local phone numbers she could have chosen, the 15-year-old Rogers girl picked one that belonged to a police detective. Police found the girl’s address by tracing her cellphone number.
The prank? Texting “I hid the body . . . Now what?” to a random phone number. The teen said she got the idea for the prank from a posting on the website Pinterest.
Police didn’t find the prank funny and said it tied up some of the department’s resources.
The girl, whom authorities did not name because she is a juvenile, was released with a warning.
