Police arrest man in book scam

LEXINGTON, KY (AP) - Police have arrested a man who posed as a student to scam people out of money in Pulaski County.

According to WKYT-TV, investigators said Sean Arnold went door-to-door telling people he was a University of Kentucky or University of Louisville student and that he was collecting money for books to be given to children's hospitals.

Police said they caught up with Arnold after he allegedly altered the amount of one of the checks he was given.

Arnold was being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center on $25,000 bond.
