Quincy Police say scammer behind bars

Shawn LaLond, 23

Quincy Police say they have a scammer behind bars.

Shawn LaLond, 23, is charged with theft by deception and possession of methamphetamine.

Police arrested him Wednesday after an investigation found LaLond going to several businesses and scamming people into giving him money.

Authorities say he would talk loudly on a cell phone about the need for money because of a family emergency.

LaLong was arrested on similar charges back in September.

Anyone who has been a victim of this should contact QPD.
