Authorities say a southwest suburban man staged his own kidnapping in an effort to collect $1,000 in ransom from his family.

Dorian Ford of unincorporated Willowbrook is charged with filing a false crime report and disorderly conduct.

The DuPage County Sheriff's Office says they received a call Tuesday night reporting a kidnapping for ransom.

Sheriff's deputies located Ford, who told them he had been hit over the head and kidnapped.

Investigators say they later determined that Ford placed that call himself.
