ASHKUM – Illinois State Police arrested a Manteno couple in connection with an alleged hit and run crash in December.
Patrick J. and Kimberley J. Sweetie, both 38, are charged with one count each of filing a false police report, a Class 4 Felony.
On Dec. 24, 2013, the Sweeties called 9-1-1 and told authorities they were northbound on Routes 45/52, just south of 10000N in Kankakee County and claimed their vehicle was struck by another vehicle which then fled. They gave authorities a license plate number and description of the alleged offending vehicle.
During the investigation, it was determined the reported offending vehicle and its owner were not involved in alleged crash.
