Halloween prank lands women in jail

BARSTOW, Calif. (AP) - October 29, 2010

San Bernardino County deputies responded to a report of a dead body on a freeway on-ramp.

The "victim" was actually a mannequin wrapped in what looked like a bloody sheet.

Authorities say the responding deputies noticed two people with binoculars watching the scene unfold.

Deputies say they questioned the women who admitted to the prank.

They were busted on suspicion of false report of an emergency.
