JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he used his young daughter as bait when he went door-to-door, pretending to be selling pizzas and cookies to raise money.

Instead, Johnstown police Chief Craig Foust tells WJAC-TV (https://bit.ly/1qNdPyB ) that 28-year-old Jon Beltz didn’t intend to deliver the food before he was charged Sunday.

That’s when police say they found him with a list of people he solicited, along with money he collected from them.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Beltz.

He faces a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges including corruption of minors and theft by deception.



He remained in the Cambria County Prison on Tuesday.
