Man Arrested for Scam in Pike County

Police say a man scammed people by pretending to be raising money for a child's funeral.

Police say David Pugh went door-to-door in the Virgie community, of Pike County, to get donations.

But police say the child Pugh claimed to be raising money for doesn't exist.

After receiving multiple calls about him, police arrested him outside of a business Tuesday.

So far, police have charged Pugh with disorderly conduct.

They say he admitted using the money he collected to support his drug addiction.
