Cops: Truck stuck in Jennings sand no 'carjacking'

A Rakoczy Avenue teen tried to spin a tale of a carjacking after his truck got stuck in the sand at Jennings Beach Saturday night, police said.

Chris Pecora, 18, was issued a summons for driving off-road in connection with the incident.

He first told officers that he was jumped by two men while he sat in the truck at Jennings, according to the report, and said he then tried to fight off one of the carjackers as the other drove off in his truck.

After questioning, police said Pecora admitted there had been no carjacking.
