BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge police have arrested a man accused of duping vendors into giving him food by pretending to represent hotels and restaurants.

Cpl. L’Jean McKneely tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1lVRaTt ) 46-year-old Corey Coleman was arrested Wednesday and faces counts of felony theft and attempted felony theft.

McKneely says Coleman called food vendors and arranged invoices to be sent to hospitality establishments. He would then meet with delivery drivers throughout Baton Rouge and take the food without having to pay upfront.

Baton Rouge financial crimes detectives believe there could be additional victims. McKneely says Coleman was also wanted on outstanding warrants from various law enforcement departments.

It isn’t clear if Coleman has an attorney for comment.
