N.J. men playing prank get locked in Pa. police van

KYW
(CBS/AP) RADNOR, Pa. - A couple of New Jersey men apparently thought it would be fun to hop in a police van in suburban Philadelphia and take pictures pretending they were getting arrested.

Wanna take a wild guess what happened?

The Marlton, N.J. men left a party and allegedly got into a Pennsylvania constables' van to take the mock photos. Investigators say a friend discovered the men locked inside the vehicle, and couldn't get them out - so naturally, he called 911.

Police in Radnor, Pa. tell the Philadelphia Daily News that 22-year-old Jeffrey Olson and 21-year-old Ryan Letchford were arrested early Saturday. Both men were arraigned on charges of theft, public drunkenness and criminal mischief, and posted bail.

Their booking photos, above, are real.
