According to the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office, Andaverde and his wife were home at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when two masked men broke into their home and kidnapped Andaverde at gunpoint.
Investigators say the Sheriff's Office launched a manhunt, but called it off a few hours later when no leads developed on the case.
Andaverde arrived back home Thursday morning, explaining to his wife that his captors "just let him go."
When officers arrived on the scene to interview Andaverde, something about his explanation didn't sound right to them. Andaverde was taken into custody and interviewed again at the Sheriff's Office.
He reportedly admitted to investigators that he fabricated the kidnapping because he wanted to go out drinking with his friends.
"I don't think his wife appreciated being kept until 4 or 5 in the morning, being interviewed by the cops while her husband was out doing who knows what with who knows who," said Hidalgo County Sheriff, Guadalupe Trevino. "He's going to have a lot of answering to do."
Andaverde was booked into jail and charged with making a false report to police. He was released after posting $5,000 bail.
