A Brownstown man was arrested Wednesday for numerous thefts by deceiving money from several people throughout the Dudleytown and Tampico areas.
The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says 30-year-old Robert L. Hollin, Jr. was also arrested on an outstanding warrant for a parole violation and was charged locally for several counts of theft. He is being held in the Jackson County Jail without bond. Police arrested Hollin at Walmart in Seymour where he was still attempting to solicit money from store customers as well as for the parole violation warrant
According to the sheriff's department's report, Hollin had been going door to door asking people for money for his infant child to buy diapers and formula. However, Hollin does not have an infant child.
At this time, the sheriff's department has determined that Hollin received over $200 in cash through his actions. Several people offered to buy the formula and diapers and even deliver those items to Hollin's home but he only wanted the cash.
The investigation also found that Hollin spent the money on himself. Some of the items he purchased included cigarettes, gasoline and soft drinks.
