July 11, 2012 (San Diego’s East County)—Seth Tucker, 22, was arrested this morning for a scam in which he allegedly asked Santee residents for donations to send a local high school baseball team to Maui for a championship game.
“Investigators learned that Tucker had been doing this scam for several months in several different neighbors,” said Sgt. Tom Poulin. “He would always represent himself as a player for the local high school team of the area he was in.”
Tucker was taken into custody in the 12000 block of Calle De Medio in El Cajon. Also arrested at the same residence was Danica Centracchio, 22, for being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Over the past two days, detectives have been contracted by numerous victims. The investigation is continuing.
