State police continue their search for accused cop killer Eric Frein. Sometimes, the tips they receive don’t pan out; other times, they’re blatantly false.
Officials have been on the lookout for Frein, 31, after police said he ambushed two state troopers on Sept. 12 outside the police barracks in Blooming Grove, Pike County.
According to a state police news release, Michael Vincent Abuiso, 48, of Canadensis, Monroe County, walked into the Barrett Township Police Department on Sept. 18. He provided a statement to police between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. that said he knew Frein.
The officer provided the information to state police investigators. State police later interviewed Abuiso, who admitted he made up the story, police said.
Abuiso was arrested and charged with unsworn falsification to authorities and false reports to law enforcement.
