Two people are accused of going to the DeSoto County Jail and pretending to be detectives in an attempt to get their friend released.

Deputies in DeSoto County say Monday night two people, 22-year-old Francine Olson and 24-year-old Brandon Reyes, went to the sheriff’s office and buzzed the jail entrance intercom, telling staff that they were “new detectives” in an apparent attempt to spring their “partner,” 40-year-old George Chanza, out of jail.

Chanza was arrested on April 26 for an outstanding warrant.
