OCALA, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida couple has been arrested after police say they set up a sham military donation operation.

Investigators say Gloria Dianne Woodside and her boyfriend Stephen J. Concannon sold military paraphernalia in front of an Ocala store while dressed in fatigues.

The Ocala Star Banner (https://bit.ly/1eisUVn ) reports an officer approach Concannon and said he’d received a complaint the activity might be fraudulent.

The officer asked Concannon for documents proving he had authorization to sell the merchandise. Concannon claimed to be from a Kissimmee Navy SEALs foundation, but when the officer called a number on one of the documents he provided, Concannon’s phone rang.

Police say Concannon admitted the operation was fake. He allegedly told police he usually made $200 a day and that his girlfriend was involved.
