Accused Quincy scammer behind bars

Shawn Lalond, 22.

A Quincy man accused of scamming people out of money is behind bars Thursday morning.

Shawn Lalond, 22, was arrested on theft charges yesterday.

The Adams County Sheriff's Department says they received several calls about a man soliciting money in the area of St.Ludgerus Road and Royal Oaks Mobile Home Park near Quincy.

The sheriff's office investigation found that Lalond asked numerous people for money by falsely telling them that one of his family member had been injured and he needed money for gas to get to an area hospital.
