LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man scammed a business and the family of a sick child to the tune of $9,000, according to police.

An arrest warrant states Kyle Nunn, 30, contacted Baxter's 942, a bar and grill in the Highlands neighborhood of Louisville, and entered into an agreement to plan a benefit concert for a sick child in October of 2013.

Baxter's believed Nunn was arranging for Jason Aldean to play a concert at their venue to raise money for the child's family, police said. Baxter's wrote Nunn a $6,000 check with this intention.

Detectives said later that month, the suspect spoke to the sick child's parents and told them he needed a check for the concert. Officers believe he then received a check from the child's foundation, Addie's Army, for $3,000. Nunn had the victim make the check out to a third party who was supposedly affiliated with Aldean, police said.

According to police, that person turned out to be Nunn's stepfather.

During the investigation, police found surveillance footage showing Nunn cashing one check and his stepfather cashing the second while the suspect watched.

Detectives said neither Nunn nor his stepfather are in any way associated with Jason Aldean and there was no benefit concert.

The warrant continues to say the suspect kept the money and never refunded the checks he cashed.

Nunn was arrested January 31 and is charged with two felony counts of theft by deception.
