Sacramento Sheriff's deputies shut down what they said was a bogus operation to collect funds for a Shriners hospital.
Two suspects were arrested May 6 after deputies said they found them soliciting funds for the hospital even though they had no connection to the Shriners facility. The pair had set up a table with a jug for cash contributions in front of a business in the 4400 block of Florin Road, according to a crime report released this week.
Deputies were called to the scene by someone who became suspicious after they were asked for a donation, the report states.
Traci Rivera, 47, and Daryl Armstrong, 51, were booked into jail on suspicion of conspiracy to solicit money under false pretenses and probation violations, the crime report states.
