HOUMA, La. (AP) - Houma police are encouraging citizens to keep a tight fist and stay vigilant toward fraudulent panhandlers as the Christmas holiday season kicks into high gear.

Lt. Bobbie O’Bryan tells The Courier (http://bit.ly/1lZmh0d) reports of people pretending to be homeless and begging for cash have been increasing.

O’Bryan says panhandling is consistent throughout the year, but the post-Thanksgiving period leading into Christmas is likely to attract the greatest number of impostors.
